2016 Gewürztraminer

Winemaker's Notes:

The aromas are flamboyant; rose petal, lavender, lanolin and passion fruit come to mind.  With a vivid, luscious texture, the wine delivers spiced flavours of peach, citrus and seared tropical fruits.

Estate Vineyard clusters were picked October 4th as grape sugars averaged 21.7° Brix.  Pressing followed a 48-hour cold soak of free-run juice on the crushed grape skins.  After cold fermentation in stainless steel the wine aged in tank for a further six months being bottled .

At the time of bottling in April 2017 alcohol measured 13.5%, residual sugar 0.5 g, titratable acidity 4.4 grams per litre and pH 3.46.

Production of only 84 cases.

Food Companions:

Serve near 8° C with a Cobb Salad using greens, avocado and Roquefort cheese.
