Gewurztraminer is the most typical Alsatian wine. Gewurz means "spicy" in German, which is the main characteristic of Gewurztraminer. Traminer means "coming from Tramin", a small city in south Tyrol, Austria, where the grape originates from. The Clarksburg appellation is ideal for producing white varietals such as Gewurztraminer, mainly due to its climate and rich sandy, clay soils. Our vineyards enjoy hot, summer days from Sacramento Valley, which allow the intense aroma of the fruit to develop. But they are also exposed to the cool maritime breezes from the bay in the evenings giving the grapes a fresh acidity. We take special care in all aspects of our grape growing from deficit irrigation, to precise pruning techniques, to handpicking at harvest.
Handpicked at optimal maturity, the grapes were pressed whole cluster and subsequent juice was cold settled. The juice was racked of solids and then cold fermented for several weeks.
