Gertie & Max Gutedel Trocken
Known as Chasselas in France and Pendant in Switzerland, this ancient white variety is both a popular table grape and a wine grape.
It ripens fairly early and produces a rather neutral wine, low in acidity, that is best enjoyed while young. Gutedel probably originated in Asia Minor. German plantings today are almost exclusively limited to Baden's southernmost district, Markgräflerland.
A gentle, dry, deeply colored, aromatically nutty wine for cheeses, cream sauces, baked seafood and fondue.
