VINEYARD:  Eurangie Park, Cheshunt (King Valley) Victoria

 

WINEMAKING:  Single vineyard white field blend of Garganega (67%) & Gewürztraminer (33%).

Gewürztraminer - pressed straight to older French oak barriques. Fermented wild with regular bâtonnage, followed by 5 months maturation.

Garganega – 75% was destemmed and spent 6 days on skins. 25% underwent three weeks carbonic maceration. Both batches then pressed to older French oak to complete wild fermentation. Matured for 5 months prior to blending. 

 

TASTING NOTE:  Bright straw-yellow in colour, this charismatic wine displays aromas of honeysuckle, lemon balm, stonefruit and lychee. The palate displays cool minerality among refreshing layers of melon and lemon with a subtle, gently savoury finish.

AU$25.00Price
  • 'A charismatic white wine from the King Valley that brings together aromas of quince, lemon balm and fresh lime with a palate that shows light puffs of talc-like mineral charm among refreshing fruitiness and a cool, gently savoury and dry finish. Plenty going on here - some exotic and appealing character in tow.'

    'Plenty of colour and indeed flavour. Texture too for that matter. Nuts, stonefruit, heaps of florals and spice. You never walk away from a party asking whether ‘Traminer was there. Lychee and roses, here in abundance.'
