This late harvest style has a lovely balanced sweet finish - always a favourite choice at our cellar door.
Varietal: 66% Riesling, 44% Gewürztraminer.
Region: Rowland Flat, Barossa Valley.
Vineyard and Vinification:
A succulent fruity blend of Riesling with Gewürztraminer grapes that were part biodynamically grown on 10 year old vines in heavy red / brown earth, in the eastern foothills of Rowland Flat.
The late-picked Gewürztraminer fruit was allowed to fully ripen to 17°Baume, at which time the Riesling was also picked, that being 13.5°Baume.
The finished wine retains perfectly balanced sweetness with the natural acidity.
Tasting Notes: Medium straw in colour. A fresh perfumed bouquet of spicy fruit with an explosion of sweetness on the palate, followed by a cleansing acid finish.
Enjoy this wine as an aperitif, with a dessert, or with a delicately spiced curry.
Alcohol: 11.5% v/v.
Cellar: Now to 5 years.
Closure: Screw cap.
