“Youthful and elegantly perfumed, this attractive Gewurz shows ripe stone fruit, lychee, floral and spice aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that’s smooth and finely textured. The wine flows beautifully to a delicately dry finish. Very friendly and easy on the palate."
88/100, 4 stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2015

"Dry and delicate Gewurztraminer with a hint of sweetness balanced by fine tannins giving the wine a slightly peppery texture. Floral and spicy flavours combine and contrast."

Winemaking notes

Fruit for this Gewurztraminer was sourced entirely from the organic certified vineyard adjacent to the winery. We harvested relatively early when the fruit reached 23.1° Brix on 24 March 2014.
Grapes were pressed very slowly and the juice was settled and racked. Fermentation was all in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures to retain aromatics. The ferment was stopped at 5.7 g/l residual sugar to give a splash of sweetness. The wine was bottled in July 2014.
