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

An aromatic variety of German origin that goes well with strong flavours in food, particularly spicy food. A difficult name to pronounce and the cellar staff usually refer to it as “what’s coming now” instead of Gewurztraminer.

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.
