Our newest release is a fun and flamboyant blend of rare and unusual varieties from our 1960’s experimental planting.
Highlighted by CSIRO bred Australian cultivars Goyura and Tullilah, along with another of our favourites, Gewurztraminer.
Our winemakers had a bit of fun with the production of GG&T. The aim was to create a light and unique wine, perfect for summer picnics, and we think they have nailed it! This exuberant wine follows the citrus line with grapefruit, lemon and even pineapple notes finishing clean and dry with crisp acidity.
The grapes were harvested in early March in the cool of the early morning and pressed straight off skins. The juice was allowed to undergo a wild ferment before transferring to French oak puncheons. The lees were stirred monthly to increase mid palate weight, before bottling in November to retain the fresh lively fruit aromas and flavours.
A light and delicate but balanced wine.
Goyura was bred by the CSIRO plant research department in Merbein, VIC, as a cross between Sultana and Muscat Gordo Blanc to be well adapted to local conditions. Offers mild Muscat flavour whilst maintaining good acid.
The Gewurztraminer is a better-known varietal, and we use as a single variety sweeter table wine. In the GG&T it is co-fermented with its two partners to complete dryness and adds florals to the aromatic nose.
Tullilah was bred by the CSIRO plant research department in Merbein, VIC, as a cross between Sultana and Macabeo to be well adapted to local conditions. Offering good yields and fresh acidity.
