Gewurz 2016

Tasting Notes

Brilliant pale straw.  The 2016 vintage is forward and opulent. Rose petal and lychee fruit characters are balanced by underlying hints of citrus and mineral talc.  A vibrant wine with ripe melon, passionfruit and rosewater on the front palate. The crisp acidity holds the wine in balance with a lovely line and length that is supported by a touch of naturally preserved residual sugar.  

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested in the early morning hours where the cooler temperatures help to preserve the delicate fruit aromas. The lightly pressed juice was fermented in temperature controlled stainless tanks with a yeast strain that enhances the aromatics. Great attention to detail and a controlled fermentation is required as the ferment is stopped when the residual sugar and acid are in perfect balance.

Cellaring

With its flamboyant aromatics, and spicy texture, Gewurztraminer is an ideal partner for an array of Asian cuisines. Try matching this wine with a fragrant prawn laksa, or chicken, chilli and coriander dumplings. Our 2016 Gewurz is best enjoyed whilst young and fresh, however it will develop rich spicy fruit characters over 2 -3 years.

"Our aim with this wine is to capture the incredible aromatics and pristine fruit flavours for which the variety is renowned."  Colin Campbell
