Reviews

"Lovely rich and luscious Gewurztraminer with impressive intensity. Ripe stone fruit, floral and tropical fruit flavours with a seasoning of spice. Made in a medium style with a good balance of acidity and tannins that prevent any suggestion of cloying."
93/100, Bob Campbell, Master of Wine

Winemaking notes

Fruit for this Gewurztraminer was sourced entirely from the vineyard adjacent to the winery. It is 95% Gewurztraminer with the addition of 5% Muscat. We harvested both varieties by hand at 25.9° Brix on 14 April 2011.

The grapes were whole-bunch pressed slowly and the juice settled and racked. Fermentation was in a stainless steel tank at low temperatures to retain aromatics. The ferment was chilled to stop yeast activity when the residual sugar reached 30 grams/litre.

The wine was bottled in November 2011.
