Viticulture

A cool start to spring meant that the growing season was slow out of the gates, but a warm and dry summer ensued allowing fruit to reach ideal maturity and flavour ripeness in good time. The growing season was settled and cool, high altitude sites allowed natural acidity to be maintained. Fruit was handpicked in pristine condition.

Wine Making

Hand harvested fruit was firmly whole bunch pressed to impart some skin contact to release the full flavour profile. A small parcel of the fruit was foot-stomped prior to pressing and impart some phenolic texture. The juice was cool fermented to help retain floral and natural Gewurztraminer aromas.

Palate

Tangerine and persimmon fruits spill onto the palate. There is a fleshiness to the wine that is held taught by the pithy acid line. Spicy ginger phenolics focus the palate, helping add structure and drive. The finish is fresh and zesty; full-flavoured acid and phenolics are enmeshed within the fruit. A very refreshing and lively palate.
