The 2017 Gewürztraminer was harvested when the flavours were fully
developed and the acidity was just right. We hand-harvested to protect the integrity of the fruit and processed some to skin soak for 8 hours. After skin soaking, we whole cluster pressed in our gentle bladder press. Juice selection was made at the press pan to ensure there was not any over extraction of phenolic flavours from the grape skins. Cold settled after pressing and
then racked into stainless steel for a long, slow fermentation at cool temperatures, to enhance aromatics and preserve fruitiness. Fermentation finished timely this vintage and the wine was protein stabilized and
filtered before bottling.
Straw with a clear hue.
A perfect match to the aromas, rich with citrus fruits, rose petals and lychee fruit when entering the palate. This Gewürztraminer is fresh, full and is very fruit- driven. Notes of peach, mango, honeysuckle and spice are layered with rich
texture and balance. This wine is full and round on the palate. Pleasant and balanced, a medium bodied wine with a medium-long finish that has a hint of ginger that lingers on the finish. This Gewürztraminer drinks well on its own and pairs with many styles of food.
A very perfumed wine with rose petal, lychee and musky grapefruit that fill the glass. A fresh, ripe medley of fruits and flowers awaken the senses. Secondary
perfume notes, passion fruit and spice complete the aroma profile.
