The family owned and operated estate Hanewald-Schwerdt was founded in 1955 in Leistadt. Today Thomas Hanewald & Stephan Schwerdt run the family business which was established by their grandfather. The two cousins focus on Riesling and Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc being the second most important white variety. The secret of these handcrafted wines is a unique lime-stone reef which dominates all the sites around Leistadt, a hidden treasure away off the beaten track. The vines are old and surrounded by a protected natural resort in the shade of the Haardt mountains.
Hanewald-Schwerdt Gewurztraminer 2020
Delicately spicy, lots of notes of yellow fruits and rosewood with herbal and earthy nuances. Hints of residual sugar making it perfect for spicy dishes. Fruity, floral and spicy notes reminiscent of rosewood, refreshing finish.
Winemaker’s note ‘Due to the rapidly warming soil, which is characterized by Rhine sand and river pebbles, the layers in the Dürkheim’s nun’s garden is one of the earliest in Bad Dürkheim. The sandy gravel bottom with low water storage capacity produces concentrated Gewürztraminer grapes with a great extract.
