Gewurz 2018

Flamboyant aromatics with rose petal & lychee fruit

$18.00 CELLAR CLUB
$16.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale straw with light green hues. Tropical and floral notes present an almost muscat like lift to the nose. Rose petal and lychee fruit characters are balanced by underlying hints of citrus and mineral talc.

Wine Making

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 steel tanks with a yeast strain to enhance 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, Gewürztraminer 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 2018 Gewürz is best enjoyed whilst young and fresh, however it will develop rich spicy fruit characters over the next 12 months.

Palate:

A light bodied wine with tropical sweetness on the front of the 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.
