Description

  • Dry style
  • Lychee & citrus
  • Rose petals
  • Rounded texture

"Striking bouquet - fragrant, intensely fruited, spicy and varietal. Flavours of exotic fruits steeped in flowers and spices. Apples and fresh lychees, lemon candy and roses. Silky texture with medium acidity, a core of fruit, loaded with spices and a lengthy finish. Well-made and ready to pair with all white fleshed foods and vegan dishes. best from today and through 2024" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, Oct 2020

This is gewürztraminer personified with wonderfully lifted florals and pronounced notes of lychee and citrus. The wine has a soft and rounded texture with a weighty, generous mid-palate. Rose petal flavours give way to ripe tropical fruits while the finish has a pithy lemon character. Intensely concentrated, complex and delicious.

95% from their Home Block around the winery, planted in 1981, with the balance from the Woodward block located a few hundred metres down the road.

Picking when the flavour is optimal is key for this variety and we made several picks across the vineyard to ensure each parcel was perfect. The grapes were gently pressed with the free run juice straight to tank and the pressings to barrel. Post-fermentation these were carefully blended to give a wine with rich aromatics, flavour and texture yet with harmony and balance.

Food Pairing: Try with exotic, well-flavoured and spicy foods such as Moroccan dishes with dried fruits or Asian-inspired foods. It works well with these flavours: fresh ginger, clove, cinnamon, allspice, turmeric, madras curry, sichuan pepper, soy sauce, sesame, almond, rose water.
