At FITZ-RITTER ESTATE, there is no use of herbicides or insecticides, only organic fertilizers are used. Seeds, stems and skins of our own grapes as well as horse and chicken manure are worked into the soil. There is no use of heavy machinery that compresses the soil in the vineyards. Instead, the vineyards are worked primarily by hand, using extensive canopy management (hand cutting of leaves to expose the grapes to the sun). Fitz-Ritter is a member of the “Controlled Environmentally Friendly Viticulture.” Our philosophy is to work our vineyards as gently as possible in order to give them sustainable growth.

ALCOHOL: 9.5% RES. SUGARS: 50.2 G/L ACIDITY: 6.1 G/L
This is a sweeter, “typically Pfalz” Gewürztraminer which enjoys a great following and is always a favorite. It is never over-the-top sweet, always subtle with a delightful lychee, rose petal and sweet honeydew melon palate and a delicate spiciness.
