2021 Reserve Gewurztraminer


This wine is a blend of two standout Gew├╝rztraminer
clones, 456 (74%) and 1106 (26%). A low yielding
crop of optimally ripe fruit was harvested in early
April 2021. With minimal skin contact the juice was
pressed off to tank and divided up into different
ferments. A variety of different yeasts were used to
get the best out of the Gewurztraminer aromatics and
ferment was stopped with medium dry sweetness.
Racked and aged on light lees for 6 months before
blending. The best components were chosen to make
up this Reserve blend.
pH 3.78
TA 4.4 g/l
RS 16.8 g/l
Alcohol 14.0%
Concentrated aromatics of lychee, honeysuckle and
tropical fruit, rose florals and savoury ginger spice
with a hint of lemon curd. The concentrated palate is
mouth filling and luscious, with a backbone of rich
spice and balanced acidity with off dry sweetness,
textured and complex through to the finish.
