Product Notes:
Approximately 5% of our Sauvignon Blanc is barrel fermented and is aged for five months in neutral oak, an additional 10% is stainless steel tank fermented but aged in neutral oak. The balance is cold fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. This mixed approach gives the wine a soft mouthfeel while maintaining the vibrant and crisp character of the varietal. Similar to last vintage, the manageable pace of the 2006 harvest allowed us to pick the full spectrum of ripeness levels to optimize the blend. The mild weather and staggered picks show through in the true varietal character and balanced acidity of this vintage.

Aromas of lemongrass, grapefruit, lime and bright melon are evident on the nose. The tangy acidity complements the lemon custard, flinty citrus and fresh melon on the palate. A hint of grass helps to balance this wine's well-integrated fruit and crisp dry texture.

About Estate:
Husch Vineyards is a small, family owned and operated winery. Founded in 1971,it 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 1968, 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.

In 1979, Hugo Oswald Jr. bought the 6,000 case Husch Winery from the Husch family. The Oswald family had been growing pears in the Santa Clara Valley, but when the area was expanding they sold the land and headed for the southern tip of Mendocino County. Today Husch Vineyards remains owned and operated by the 3rd Generation of the Oswald family: Zac Robinson and Amanda Robinson Holstine. Winemaking is under the direction of Brad Holstine. Al White, in charge of all viticulture operations, has been with Husch since 1973. Through the years Husch has modernized and expanded, but it has never lost its initial rustic charm or reputation for great wines.

Food Pairing:
Enjoy it with a fresh fruit and cheese platter or pair with spicy cuisine, and your favorite chicken dishes.

Recipe:
Serve with Husch 2006 Sauvignon Blanc.

8 Medium Zucchini 2 Large cloves of finely chopped fresh garlic 3 Tablespoons of finely chopped fresh mint leaves 2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice Cup of extra virgin olive oil Dried red chili stemmed and crushed into tiny pieces Salt & Pepper to taste
