2017 Dry Gewurztraminer
The vines which produce the grapes for this wine are a mix of old and young. Our old vines actually date back to the original planting of Husch in 1968 and continue to produce golden rust-colored berries with amazing character. Over the years we have expanded our Gewurztraminer fields to take advantage of our unique soil profile and climate which is so well suited to this grape.
We hand harvested the grapes over the course of several different nights to capture each block at its optimum ripeness. The careful timing of harvest allows us to find the ideal balance between achieving a ripe aromatic profile and maintaining acidity - a goal that dates back centuries in the Alsatian region. With the grapes just right, we gently press, cool ferment and finally age the wine in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.
Way more fun to drink than it is to pronounce, Husch’s 2017 Dry Gewurztraminer (just say guh-vertz) is simply irresistible. This vintage temps with aromas of honeysuckle, jasmine, and grapefruit. Even just a small sip of this lively wine fills your 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, Husch Gewurz will age wonderfully when cellared.
