Aromas of allspice, jasmine and citrus burst from the glass of this 2013 vintage Gun Bun favorite. More info »
The 2017 of our perennially selling out, fan-favorite Gewürztraminer demonstrates nothing but the energy the Bundschus have to excel another 160 years.
When you've been growing the same grape for 160 years, it would be easy to get bored and complacent. However, the 2017 of our perennially selling out, fan-favorite Gewürztraminer demonstrates nothing but the energy the Bundschus have to excel another 160 years. Bursting with aromas of fresh jasmine blossoms, lychee, Asian pears, and Gari (sushi ginger), the medium body and supple texture of the wine carry lush pomelo-citrus flavors through a crisp, dry finish. While you might be salivating for sashimi right now, this German grape grown in California is great with a variety of cuisines, warm days, and, of course, friends.
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.
