2018 Husch Anderson Valley Dry Gewurztraminer
Retail Price: $15.00
Our Price: $13.49
History: "Our old vines date back to the original planting of Husch in 1968 and continue to produce dorée, or rust-colored, berries with amazing varietal character. Gewurztraminer, along with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, was the foundation of the winery in the early years and the grape continues to thrive in our unique soils and cool climate."
Winemaking: The team hand harvests the grapes over the course of several nights to capture each block at its optimum ripeness. The careful timing allows them to find the ideal balance between achieving a ripe, aromatic profile and maintaining acidity—a goal that dates back centuries in the Alsace. With the grapes just right, they gently press, cool ferment and finally age the wine in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.
Tasting Note: "Way more fun to drink than it is to pronounce, Husch’s 2018 Dry Gewurztraminer (just say guh-vertz) is simply irresistible. It tempts with aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, and grapefruit. Even just a small sip of this lively wine fills your whole mouth with rich flavors. Perfect on its own, or try with chicken butter lettuce wraps with a spicy peanut sauce or warmed camembert with honey and walnuts. Unlike some other white wines, your Gewurz will age wonderfully when carefully cellared."
