2020 GEWÜRZ - Organically Grown

Retail Price: $15.00

Bright fruit, great balance and just the right spice!

Our Gewürz is harvested exclusively from a single small CCOF (“California Certified Organic Farmers”) vineyard about one hour north of our home estate, located in Mendocino’s cool growing region of Potter Valley.  This rugged location is the key to the great acidity and balance in our Gewürz.  

The 2020 growing season enjoyed near-perfect growing conditions.  The year began with unseasonably warm temperatures, and lower than normal rainfall.  This was followed by weeks of steady daytime heat and cool evenings, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly.  While many areas saw an early harvest, the vineyard in Potter Valley was picked the same time as last year.  At harvest, the quality of the fruit was excellent with high acidity and intense flavors.
 
We harvest the Gewürztraminer at night, then the juice was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve that acidity and the bright aromatics of the wine.
 
This is an aromatic wine with an enticing floral nose and initial aromas of grapefruit, citrus, tropical lychee, melon, rose and pear.  Our 2020 Gewürz is a drier style with an appealing minerality and bright flavors.  This is a silky, rich wine with spicy flavors of apple, pear, grapefruit and nice acid balance on the finish. 

*This wine will begin shipping in mid-November 2020.
