Husch Vineyards Gewürztraminer Anderson Valley 2005

External Review by Appellation America:

Gewurztraminer is one of the grapes that got Anderson Valley through as a wine region until the Pinot Noir kicked in and people in expensive cars started rolling through the valley looking for red wine. Before that, we drank the Riesling, the Chardonnay, and, yes oh yes, the Gewurz. Husch has vines of the variety planted as far back as 1968, which give classic Alsatian floral and spice qualities – always a good thing with otherwise lightweight white wines.This particular bottling has very little color, so your first clue that it’s the real deal comes when you sniff the pears, white peaches and petrol notes mingled with lilies and strawflowers. In your mouth you get all these confected into the perfect late summer wine: light and refreshing, alternately gripping your palate and gliding across it, and keeping the fruit alive and cool long in the finish. All this for only fourteen bucks, friends, and summer doesn’t official end until September 22nd.

Husch Vineyards is a small, family owned and operated winery. It is the oldest winery in the Anderson Valley appellation, located in Mendocino County (Northern California) just 2 1/2 hours north of San Francisco. Under the direction of 3rd generation family members Husch produces 21 different wines, of which 6 are distributed nationally. Small lots of special wines are available exclusively at our tasting room, a converted pony barn dating back to the late 1800's. Quality is the key word at Husch: in the vineyards, in our winemaking and in our friendly customer service. It all starts in the vineyard. Our wines are made from grapes grown on vineyards managed by the winery, allowing us to bring consistent, high-quality fruit to the bottle. Our winemaking team pays careful attention to the fruit as it comes off the vine at harvest. All grapes are hand-harvested. Using specific clonal selections and yeast strains allows us to consistently produce world-class estate bottled wines from vintage to vintage. The friendly and knowledgeable tasting room staff strives to make your visit to Anderson Valley memorable. With our long farming heritage, Husch wines showcase the fruit in each bottle and reflect a true commitment to quality and value. The Husch Vineyards family and staff love to share recipes to pair with our favorite Husch wines. We would love to hear about your favorite food and wine pairings and put your recipe on the webpage.
