Gewürztraminer 2016

R500.00

Characteristics
Type – White
Body – Medium
Taste – Fragrant

Aromatic and intense the wine has delightful flavours of rose petals, litchi and Turkish delight. The wine has a full palate that is carried by a fresh acidity and lingering creamy finish.
These 35-year-old vineyards present a visual anomaly. Gnarled and far from aesthetic, they produce the tiniest berries with astonishing aromatic concentration. Southwest facing with one of the most extreme slopes on the farm, the wines enjoy the wintry exhalation of the Atlantic Ocean less than a stone’s throw away.
