2013 GEWÜRZ

Sold Out

Our 2013 Gewürz is harvested exclusively from a single small CCOF - “California Certified Organic Farmers” vineyard.

The vineyard is located about one hour north of our home estate, located in Mendocino’s cool growing region - Potter Valley. This location is the key to the great acidity in our Gewürz. 2013 was another vintage for the record books, with an almost perfect growing season, great yields and superb fruit flavors. The warm winter and spring resulted in uniform ripening and excellent quality in the Gewürztraminer grapes.

Overall, there were fewer hot and cold spikes than recent vintages, sugar levels were able to develop evenly and flavors developed more quickly. We cold fermented the juice in stainless to preserve the bright spicy floral aromatics and natural acidity, and continued the slightly drier style to showcase the mineral qualities.

This is the perfect party wine - it pairs well with many appetizers and both the wine novice and wine lover will love it.
