Gewurztraminer


“The picking decision is the most crucial step to preserving the aromatics of this wine. During harvest, we tend to use our senses more with this varietal rather than our lab instruments. You can’t go strictly on the brix and acidity numbers, it has to be a call that you make out in the vineyard. It takes walking the rows and tasting berries to find the perfect day to bring in the fruit. In the vineyard and in the glass, Gewurztraminer is one of the most recognizable varietals. However, as the fruit ripens, that spicy character we all love can be lost forever if you’re not careful. When in doubt, rather than letting in hang on the vine too long, we pick the Gewurz early rather than being late.”

-Co-winemaker, Anne Sery
