2018 Reserve Gewurztraminer

Winemaking notes
This wine is predominantly a blend of clone 456 and
1106 Gewürztraminer.  A low yielding crop of very
ripe fruit was harvested in late April 2018.The juice
was inoculated and fermented to medium dry. After
settling,   the   tanks   were   racked   and   allowed   to
develop   without   sulphur   for   10   months   prior   to
blending and bottling.
Tasting Notes
Heady aromatics of coriander seed, lychee,
rosewater, talc, lemons and limes, this is a
superlative Gewurztraminer with a mouth filling,
concentrated palate combining the luscious
promise of the nose with body, texture, complexity
and length. A special wine from a great vintage,
this will evolve in bottle but will give pleasure from
the start.
