    Winemakers Tasting Notes

    Our 2012 Gewurztraminer 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 apple and pear based desserts. This wine has a classically styled spiced Gewurztraminer profile, offset by Central Otago minerality and an exceptional mouth feel.

    Winemaking Notes

    As has become our preferred winemaking style, we de-stemmed and lightly crushed our Gewurztraminer grapes before loading them into a tank press for 48 hours skin contact.

    Following this maceration period, we pressed the juice into stainless steel tanks and lightly pumped-over during fermentation in order to maximize the intense aromas and flavours that we achieved from our 2012 crop.
