Delight your senses with attractive aromatics and luscious flavors of rose, juicy fruit, lychee, grapefruit, and mixed spices. This wine is as much a pleasure to smell as it is to drink. Its structure makes it approachable now, although experience suggests an additional year or two of aging would be worth the wait. Indulge the senses by pairing this wine with bratwurst on a pretzel bun, apple chutney, Raclette cheese, or mandarin chicken.
Founded in 1971, Husch is the oldest winery in the picturesque Anderson Valley. The vineyards are comprised of some of the earliest varietal plantings on the valley floor. In 1967 Tony and Gretchen Husch bought the 60-acre Nunn ranch between Philo and Navarro on Highway 128. The land was well known for growing apples and grains. They soon planted eight acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Gewurztraminer grapes on the cool slopes of the property. The plantings sweep down towards the pristine Navarro River. The first official crush was in the fall of 1971.
