Small Lot Whites
2012 Small Lot Gewurztraminer
$30.00 per bottle
Our Gewurztraminer grapes are the last white grapes to be harvested to capture the full fruit intensity. After a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks the wine is aged in older French oak barrels for three months to add complexity, body and structure.
The classic bouquet of lychee fruit, rose petal, ginger, quince and tropical fruit teases the senses. Full-bodied, rich and smooth, this white wine begins with big bold flavours of fleshy fruits such as lychee, melon and pear dusted with spice, then, lingering endlessly on the finish, intense exotic spices and lychee fruit.Serve lightly chilled at 13 to 15˚C. Enjoy with savoury Spanish paella; roasted salmon with Hoisin glaze; aged Swiss and Muenster cheese; clove studded ham; onion and mushroom quiche; bacon and onion tarts; savoury ginger based stir-fry.
This wine will continue to develop through 2016.
