California Wine, Dry Creek Valley
About Fritz Vineyard Wines
Fritz Winery credo is to approach winemaking as an art form. Art, in its truest sense, inspires a shift in consciousness. Our mission is to create wines of genuine artistry, capable of transforming the way we think about the potential of Sonoma County's premier appellations. The new generation of Fritz wines began with a commitment to unequivocal quality. Since 1996, changes at Fritz Winery have been swift and dramatic: Volume has been slashed by two-thirds to only 12,000 cases per vintage. New winemaking equipment is both esoteric and state-of-the-art. An underground cave ages all red wines. The vast majority of wines are vinified on native yeast. All white wines are currently single-vineyard designates, with red wines now in barrel soon to follow suit. The result? Cognoscenti now rank Fritz wines among California's top tier producers. Our limited edition wines now command a following among serious collectors. One hundred per cent of Fritz wines are sold on allocation. And the best is yet to come. Keep in mind that our vineyards are our greatest asset. Like the most celebrated wines of France, our limited edition single-vineyard wines showcase the singular expression of each superb viticultural site. From the perfect microclimate of the Dry Creek Valley, we produce Sauvignon Blanc, Old Vine Zinfandel, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Since we have the best of both worlds, we also have property in the very cool growing region of the Russian River Valley where we produce world class single vineyard Chardonnays.
Fritz Winery 2001 Dutton Ranch Chardonnay
The Dutton Ranch Chardonnay comes form Dutton Hill and the Mill Station Vineyards, two top vineyards of the world-renowned Dutton Ranch in the Russian River Valley. Our new release Dutton Ranch Chardonnay is brilliant! Fresh pineapple and warm apricot flavors overwhelm the senses. It is elegant and rich with hints of butterscotch extract and crisp almond toastiness finish it off. It is a luscious example of a French style Chardonnay.
Fritz Winery 2001 Rogers` Reserve Zinfandel
Our 2001 Rogers` Reserve Zinfandel is powerful and intense with raspberry, blackberry, ripe plum flavors laced together perfectly with black pepper, brown sugar and cinnamon tones.
Fritz Winery 2001 Late Harvest Zinfandel
This wine is made from a special, fat berry clone of zinfandel ideal for late harvest. The fruit comes from the Redwood Hill Vineyard on the Fritz estate. Rich and robust, this port -like dessert wine combines deep raspberry and ripe black cherry flavors with caramel and toasty spiciness for a full-bodied wine. There is a natural sweetness with a delicately balanced acidity.The result is a naturally sweet, rich, warm and expansive expression of zinfandel.
Fritz Winery 2001 Old Vine Zinfandel
Our 2001 vintage of Old Vine Zinfandel is indeed the best of both worlds. It is filled with soft dried fruit and warm ripe plums softly wrapped around rosemary, thyme and sage. And then finishes off bold with round tannins and earthy with essences of old dark leather.
