2017 Gewürztraminer

2017 Gewürztraminer

Winemaker's Notes:

A sniff coaxes peach stone, honey, passion fruit and floral and citrus tones from the glass.  A taste is mouth filling and piquant, sporting spicy flavours of mandarin orange, pink grapefruit, ginger and  lychee.

Estate Vineyard clusters were picked October 20th as grape sugars averaged 23.9° Brix.

Pressing followed a 12-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 five months before bottling in March 2018.

At the time of bottling alcohol measured 13.5%, residual sugar 2 g, titratable acidity 6.9 grams per litre and pH 3.74.

Production of only 103 cases.

Vegan friendly.

Food Companions:

Serve near 8° C with roast pork loin or grilled pork chops.
