Gewurztraminer Tradition 2016

A well-balanced Gewurztraminer!
  • The vintage
  • After a number of low yield harvests, the 2016 production was normal.
    Initially, cool, wet temperatures slowed the spring vegetative growth greatly. Fortunately, the weather improved but residual moisture created perfect conditions for mildew. Extra vigilance was demanded to protect the crop. An August heatwave and subsequent warm weeks until harvest created water stress in some fields but the grapes eventually ripened perfectly.
    Harvest began on September 20th and finished 7 weeks later.
    In the cellar, a few fermentations finished more quickly than in the past. The wines are well balanced, fresh, and easy to drink.
