Gewurz 2020

Flamboyant aromatics with rose petal & lychee fruit

$18.00 CELLAR CLUB
$16.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale straw green. Light floral notes present on a lifted nose. Blossom and honeysuckle characters are balanced by underlying hints of musk.

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.
