The Anderson Valley is considered by many to be the ideal home for Alsatian varieties in the New World, and this complex Gewürztraminer is a wonderful example of why. From its gorgeous layers of pear, honeydew and honeysuckle to its rich minerality and bright acidity, this is an impeccably balanced wine with impressive length and a beautiful, aromatically driven finish.
The 2016 growing season delivered another exceptional vintage to the Anderson Valley. Early and consistent spring rains provided for an excellent fruit set, followed by ideal summer temperatures, which brought the acidity and flavor profiles of the grapes into perfect balance. This sequence led us to begin harvesting our warmer estate vineyards beginning in mid-August, while a well-timed mid-September heat spike allowed our grapes in the cooler “deep end” of the valley to develop beautiful structures and lush flavors.
