Tasting notes and food pairing ideas:
The wine has an intensely aromatic nose bursting with rose petal, lychee, nutmeg, cinnamon and spice. A full bodied wine with a rich, oily texture that coats the palate with the variety’s distinct and heady flavours. The slight residual sugar adds to the wine’s weight and textural qualities. Best enjoyed with food. We recommend dishes with aromatic spices and flavours, such as Eastern Dishes, Pacific fusion food, rich foie gras, or as an aperitif.
This Gewürztraminer is in good balance and can be enjoyed immediately. The wine can also be cellared for a number of years and will gain varietal and honeyed bottle-age complexity. The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and held with the skins in the press for 24hours. The free run and light pressings were separated and cold settled. Most of the juice was fermented on light solids at low temperature with an aromatic yeast strain. The ferments were stopped with some residual sugar to aid texture and mouth feel.
