Winemaking

A wine of two halves. Picked when true GWZ “musk” characters evident into 10kg lugs, whole-bunch pressed to tank. Oxidative handling of the juice. Settled overnight before racking half to old barrique barrels and the other half to stainless steel tank for fermentation.

Barrel ferments allowed to ferment wild, tank ferment inoculated with commercial yeast and fed nutrients to retain aromatic freshness. Stainless ferment racked and sulphured immediately when dry and stored in a sealed tank. 1/3 of barrel ferments allowed to undergo malo and the others sulphured directly after primary ferment – all were stirred and matured for 11 months for textural complexity.

Barrels and stainless component then blended together March and allowed to sit over winter before bottling in the Spring.

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 Gewurztraminer is highly perfumed offering Rosewater and Spice. Full bodied slightly charry finish.

Fresh white peach and bright citrus combine with subtle oak flavours to form a generous, complex palate with a slightly creamy finish.

Pale straw colour with green hues. The nose is of lemon curd and jasmine with timbery oak. Very floral. The palate is complex and every changing. Starts with lemon and brioche, then mealy and nuttiness, a strong acid backboneand and a saline finish. It is minerally and fine boned and structural. Lovely length. Should reward cellaring

2019 Gewürztraminer Gerwurztraminer
Colour is pale with green hues. An aromatic nose of rosewater, lychees and ginger. The palate is focussed around intense midpalate fruit. There’s plenty of mealy texture and mouthfeel also, driven by sherberty acid structure and a hint of phenolic support.
