Gundlach Bundschu Gewurztraminer 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Sporting very clear themes of allspice and clove in the nose with suggestions of ripe apples and a hint of spiced orange as well this relatively mouthfilling Gewurz stays in step on the palate with ample nicely filled flavors. While it flirts with a bit of unnecessary heat at the finish it never wavers from its varietal course and while we would not choose it as a picnicky cooler it has the richness to stand up to flavorful fare such as a classic Alsatian Choucroute Garnie.

At Gundlach Bundschu we define sustainability broadly, seeking not only to be responsible stewards of the land, but also to preserve this land for future generations of our family. There is nothing static about this view of sustainability—it requires innovation and action. We believe that preserving the unique ecosystem of Rhinefarm is essential to wine quality, as well as to the health of our family and business. The introduction of beneficial predators, from owls and bluebirds to beetles and mites, and intensive pest monitoring allows us to eliminate all regular use of pesticides, use no pre-emergent herbicides and limit the use of aggressive herbicides. Cover crops contribute vital diversity and nutrition to the soils, and we utilize registered organic compounds and practices whenever possible. Vigilant management of our acute deficit irrigation program and water reclamation ponds promote conservation, recycling 70% of winery water. We use biodiesel to fuel our tractors, and continually seek ways to enhance environmental quality and make the most efficient use of resources. Like many of his family members before him, Jeff Bundschu is striving to redefine the estate vision to meet the industry challenges of the times. With superb vineyards and a talented team of employees, he is excited about the future of the estate. “Each generation of my family that has stood on this dirt felt compelled to looking at the vines and wines with a fresh eye. Our winery’s evolution is destined—families evolve. Land evolves. Plants evolve. Palates evolve.” Equally important to Bundschu is the preservation of the open-minded and spirited culture with which the winery has long been associated. “Our life here at Gundlach Bundschu, with its wine and good people, has always been about laughter, hard work, enjoying the inspiration that comes from being in such a beautiful place, and sharing what we have with our friends and neighbors.” Tasting Room Our intimate tasting room can only accomodate small groups, and we request groups of eight or more reserve a private tour for your visit.

It offers grapy, spicy, lychee nut, and rose petal-like notes, a ripe, medium-bodied, dry, crisp style, and an authentic Gewurztraminer personality
