Tasting Notes

Villiera’s 2015 Gewurztraminer is typically aromatic with intense lychee character and floral, rose petal,undertones. It is soft and off dry with a well balanced finish.

Ageing Potential

Best enjoyed chilled and young, but can be matured for a couple of years from date of vintage.

Blend Information

Food Suggestions

An aromatic variety of German origin that goes well with strong flavours in food, particularly spicy food. Best enjoyed chilled.

In The Vineyard

It is low yielding and early ripening and block used in 29 years old. The canopy is opened as much as possible to allow the darkening of the berries.

About The Harvest

Handpicked at optimal ripeness with a small percentage of botrytis

In The Cellar

After crushing and destalking about 8hrs of skin contact is allowed for maximum aroma extraction before pressing. After setting selected yeast is added for a controlled cold fermentation. It is sterilized and filtered before bottling.
