Light cropping, a warmer than average year, normal canopies and an excellent dry autumn set the scene for most ’03 wines having considerable concentration and greater expectations of longevity than normal. The tiny crops of Gewurztraminer necessitated combining the fruit from Lovat and Dry River blocks and this has yielded a wine with medium green-gold colour and a nose smelling of peach blossom and Turkish delight, orange zest and cloves with hints of Xmas cake spices and beeswax. It has a full spreading palate tasting of ripe peach and mango, mandarin zest and fruit cake spice plus bush honey. The palate is presently tighter than some of our Gewurztraminers but as it is not lacking extract and structure it should be longer term than most.
