This is our first commercial-sized crop off 7 & 8 year old vines. The clones planted in this block are sourced from Colmar in Alsace and were chosen for their tendency to produce a spicy style of wine. The grapes were harvested at the end of April, cropping at about 20hL/ha (ca 1.3t/A). The final wine is light gold with an assertive, honeyed nose of rose petals, baked pineapple, toffee and fruit cake spices. The palate is quite rich and honeyed with flavours of baked pineapple, canned peach, cinnamon and ginger. As for most Gewurztraminers, this is for drinking earlier than other varieties - up to maybe 5 years, depending on the cellar.
