Lychee, stone fruit, aromatic spices. Rich and luscious.
Ripe stone fruit, lychee, floral and spice flavours combine in this rich medium-style Gewürztraminer.
"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."

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.
Residual sugar 24 g/l
