BLACKENBROOK GEWURZTRAMINER 18
This wine is made exclusively with hand harvested fruit from the Blackenbrook Home block where the vines grow on Moutere clay soil covered by a layer of sandy loam. The wine making is extremely gentle with whole bunch pressing, cool fermentation, minimal pumping over and using gravity to move the wine when required.
12% of the wine is aged in oak to add mouthfeel and complexity and there is no fining pre-bottling.
At 5g/l of residual sugar this is dry in style.
Intensely varietal, our Gewurztraminer 2018 is marked by a delightful scent of rose petals, Turkish delight and spice followed by a lingering off-dry finish.
Ideal serving temperature: 15 degrees
