In a Nutshell
A fresh, elegant, fragrant style of Gewurz from near Tramin - the home of this grape.
Intense rose petal and lychee aromas typical of the grape, with hints of ginger, citrus peel and honeysuckle. Ripe exotic fruit on the palate, with plenty of citrus fruit balanced by zesty acidity and floral characters - leading to a long, spicy finish.
The grapes are hand-harvested, carefully selected, destalked and crushed. The must remains in contact with the skins for a short time at 5-6 degrees C to allow aromas to be extracted. The grapes are soft-pressed to prevent colour extraction from the skins - which are a copper colour when ripe. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is left in tank for 4-5 months before bottling.
