Winemakers Comments

Our  reveals a dry, intensely perfumed wine with aromas of rose petals, lychees and ripe pineapple. Creamy in texture with a lovely mineral backbone, this is a full- bodied wine with spicy undertones and crisp acidity.

Winemaking

We handpicked low yields of our Gewurztraminer grapes during the first week of April. Gentle whole bunch pressing was followed by a cool fermentation in stainless steel to retain the fresh fruit character of the grapes. No fining and only light filtration.

Food Suggestions

A very versatile wine, easy to match to many different styles of cuisine. A great choice for an aperitif or delicious served with rich fish dishes or Asian-style cuisine including those with coriander and other spices.
