Tasting notes and food pairing ideas:
This wine shows lifted aromatics of lavender, brown spices, ginger and apple. Perfectly balanced in an off dry style, the wine will match a range of spicy foods and is a wonderful companion to pear and apple based desserts. This wine has a classically styled spiced Gewurztraminer profile, offset by Central Otago minerality and an exceptional mouth feel.
As has become Shaky Bridge's preferred winemaking style, the grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed before being loaded into a tank press for 48 hours skin contact. Following this maceration period, the juice was pressed into stainless steel tanks and lightly pumped over during fermentation in order to maximize the intense aromas and flavours that were achieved.
