WINE MAKING NOTES
This wine is predominantly a blend of clone 1106 and 456 Gewürztraminer. A light crop of very ripe fruit was harvested in April. The juice was inoculated and fermented to off dry. The wine was allowed to develop without sulphur for 8 months prior to blending and bottling.
2018 was a great year for Gewurztraminer at Askerne. With perfumed notes of lychee, rose petal, Turkish delight, orange peel and citrus fruits, this wine gives way to a full-bodied, balanced, lingering finish. Pair with a range of Asian cuisines, platters or just enjoy it with good friends as an aperitif.
