Gewurz 2015

Gewurz 2015

Meaning "spice" in German, Gewurz is a fitting prefix for the distinctive Traminer grape. The grapes themselves are highly coloured just prior to harvest and often turn a deep golden copper. This somewhat brutish colour belies the delicate juice within. We have a long history of award-winning Gewurztraminer. Since 1984 we have won numerous trophies and medals for our unique style of Gewurz.

Viticulture

We are continually seeking to improve and refine our Gewurz. In our quest for the perfect grape, we searched the high regions of NSW and Victoria for the best possible cool climate Traminer vineyard. To our delight we unearthed a beauty in the Goulburn Valley. This 'secret vineyard' boasts both exceptional position and mature vines, the grapes showing intense yet delicate flavours. We harvested the grapes in late March at a Baume of 12.5.

Winemaking Notes

The making of Gewurz is all about retaining the grape's natural aromas and flavours. We crush and press the grapes quickly, ferment the juice at 13C (we use only the free-run portion) and bottle the wine quick smart. With this variety, it's all about the grape.

Tasting Notes

Banish the thoughts of the sweet, cloying Traminer of the 70's. Our Gewurz is racy and restrained with a crisp dry finish. It captures the flavours of musk, Turkish Delight and lychees while maintaining a beautiful line of citrus flavour to the finish. Perfectly matched with seafood, Thai food or any dish with a bit of spice.
