A dry style Gewurztraminer with a rose petal aroma and vibrant acidity underpinning lychees and tropical fruit flavours.
With heatwaves and drought it was a difficult vintage to maintain vine health but great for grape quality. The dry conditions meant minimal disease pressures and good fruit set and we find fruit flavour is always better if the vines are a little stressed due to water restrictions. Nevertheless it is important to reach a balance between vine health and fruit flavour. As winter and spring in 2018 were exceptionally dry we began irrigating in September (this is unusual—usually additional water is not needed until summer). Summer was very hot but frequent thunderstorms increased soil moisture and thankfully the storms did not bring any hail to damage the fruit. Cool nights in February gave the vines some rest from the heat and slowed down ripening. The fruit was hand picked in the cool of the early morning on the 18th of February. A cool and slow ferment with cultured yeast followed in a stainless steel tank to preserve varietal flavour.
