2014 Forrest Gewürztraminer


Our vineyard site in the Southern Valleys produces great Gewürztraminer year after year. Crop levels are always low so we get great concentration of flavours in the grapes. Our job as winemakers is therefore made simple. A little skin contact prior to gently pressing, then cold settling the juice to get nice clear juice. Followed by a cool ferment which retains the spicy flavours. The subsequent wine is left on light lees until spring when we finish the wine prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

A subtle nose of beautiful fresh floral rose and lemon/lime aromas with a touch of lychees and cinnamon. This is a delicate wine with flavours of baked apples and Turkish delight on the spicy palate. The wine has good length with a dry finish. Consistently one of our stars each year.
