2021 Gewürztraminer

One of the original varietals planted on Rhinefarm by our great, great, great grandfather in 1858, our aromatic Gewürztraminer tastes full-bodied and decidedly not sweet.

Tasting NOTES

A true masterpiece, if we do say so ourselves, this wine paints a beautiful portrait in both aroma and flavor profiles. Produced from unique clones of vines originally planted by Jacob Gundlach in 1858, theres nothing quite like this Gewürz. Cheerful aromatics of lychee and rosewater lead to a bright, delicious palate. Fermented with zero residual sugar, our Gewürztraminer is bone dry and offers tart notes of green apple and citrus with a crisp minerality that makes it a consistent favorite. While it may not be available at the Louvre, we think its museum-worthy and youre sure to think so, too

Vineyard NOTES

Production NOTES

This vintage, like the last, was a challenge for our team as we were once again faced with severe drought conditions. The historic lack of rainfall led to little soil moisture when the vines awoke from dormancy. Our intimate knowledge of the estate, combined with the help of soil moisture probes and evapotranspiration monitors, which measure how stressed our vines are, allowed us to coax just enough canopy growth to ripen a small but concentrated crop across all varietals. The summer was wonderfully uneventful, compared to the heat spikes and fires of 2020. Harvest began on September 4th, and the final day in mid-October was decided by a torrential rainstorm. Thankfully, we could bring in the remaining fruit before the storm hit. While some may remember this vintage what was lacking, like rain and soil moisture, quality wont be one of them. We would be lying if we said that this year didnt present some obstacles, but as we enjoy the literal fruit of our labors, we look back and wouldnt change a thing.
