2019 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.

Although the weather was a bit cooler than usual early in the 2019 growing season, there were no unusual temperature swings during bud break or flowering. The moderate temperatures continued, allowing the grapes to mature gradually. After 2018’s record setting crop size, 2019 swung back to an average yield. At harvest, the quality of the fruit was excellent with high acidity and intense flavors. 

We harvested the Gewürztraminer on September 6-9, 2019 at night to maintain the natural acidity. 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 2019 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.
