Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A bright contrast to the predominantly sweet styles. This Gewurztraminer is beautiful dry, crisp, refreshing, acidic and complex. This years Gewurztraminer comes in showing intense notes of rose petal and grapefruit on the nose with a subtle candied ginger on the palate. A perfect pairing wine for rich, spiced dishes.
Vineyard Notes
Our Gew├╝rztraminer vineyards are trained on different trellis systems to promote a better sense of terroir; Vertical Shoot Positioning in our Tony Vineyard and Scott Henry in our Terrace vineyard. Viticultural practices such as shoot thinning, green harvest (cluster thinning) and leaf removal all help with flavor concentration and a purity of fruit.
Winemaker Notes
Both vineyard blocks were hand harvested and fermented with a combination of indigenous and cultured yeasts separately at low temperatures throughout alcoholic fermentation. Once fermentation was completed the wines were racked off gross lees and, blended and allowed to age in stainless steel tanks for 4 months. 900 liters were transferred on to heavy lees contact from our Romeo vineyard chardonnay and allowed to age for the same 4 months. After being stabilized, the wines were fined and filtered and bottled in early March 2019.
