Indulge your senses! The first impression of this deep golden dry wine is the variety’s typical ethereal scent of lychees and rose petals in this intriguing dry style. Seductive floral characteristics lift above a wonderful texture. The richness on the palate and magical aromas cumulate in a long eternal finish.
A perfect wonderful sunny, long dry season lead to an early vintage. With our small team in different bubbles, we handpicked perfectly healthy small grape bunches, ripened to perfection from the 24 year old vines, amidst a national lock-down.
Hans' Winemaking Comments+
'The tiny vintage of pure luscious grapes was gently destemmed and left for a day on skin maceration to extract the superb flavours. Carefully pressed into a small stainless steel tank for a natural, wild fermentation. Left on its fine lees to mature and flourish for 12 months. Unfined (vegan) and only lightly filtered to retain all the goodness. No cold stabilization. Natural goodness.'
The variety’s typical ethereal scent of lychees and rose petals with a purity rarely seen in a natural wine. Seductive floral characteristics lift above a silky texture. The richness on the palate and complexity of aromas cumulate in great balance, complexity and elegance with a long and stimulating fresh finish. A brilliant dry Gewürztraminer with no residual sugar.
