- Winemaking Notes
Unlike previous vintages, the juice was pressed off without any skin contact. The nose has perfume-like floral notes with sweet guava aromas. The palate is sweet and well-balanced with a beautifully enveloping mouthfeel and flavours of peach compote and ripe quava. There is a noticeable sweetness on the finish.
- Growing Conditions
Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. This is the seventh vintage of Gewurztraminer from the organically and biodynamically farmed Quarry Road Vineyard. This is our heaviest crop yet - the grapes were picked later than usual also.
- Food Pairing
Gewurztraminer is the go to wine for any Asian-inspired dishes such as samosas with mango chutney, fresh shrimp spring rolls or a spicy curry. This wine would also pair perfectly with baked brie with a pineapple chutney.
