Tasting NOTES

We know wine gets better with age, but is it also possible that our Gewürztraminer gets better with every vintage? Familiar aromas of star jasmine, lychee and honeysuckle are reminiscent of vintages past, and make this wine the epitome of Gundlach Bundschu comfort food. However, a refined palate with hints of Anjou pear & grapefruit, balanced with bright acidity tell us this isn't 1858 anymore. Our Gewürztraminer may have grown up, but that crisp dry finish always feels like home.

Vineyard NOTES

The Bundschu family's 150+ year-old vineyard is located on the southwestern slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, just eight miles north of San Pablo Bay. The terrain below 150 foot elevation features gently sloping Huichica clay loam soils with gravel deposits and cooler growing conditions that deliver minerality and focused acidity. Wines grown in these blocks bear the Sonoma Coast designation to reflect their cool climate character. Eleven acres of Heritage Selection vines, planted in 1969, were harvested in two lots and bring spice and floral notes. Nine acres of clone 47 vines, planted in 2008, were harvested in three lots and provide fresh fruit flavors.
