It's rare to find a Gewurztraminer with such poise and exotic beauty. This is subtle, delicate and balanced with pinpoint precision. With maturing vines and a truly favourable year for Gewurz, this wine speaks with real accuracy and pride of its place. This, along with slow, whole bunch pressings, wild ferments and extended lees contact, has resulted in a wine which is defined by remarkable grace and clarity.

Mike Bennie

"Smells sweet but not bubblegummy and cartoony, more Turkish market spice and rosewater bath in the most refined, evocative sense. Succulent in texture, concentrated flavours but again, a ripple of chalky texture, bright core of mixed-minerally acidity, a chew to finish and this beautiful, lingering, fresh sweetness. Candied almonds, dried citrus peel, green apple, faint nutty characters. Just wonderful. Such an intriguing, beautiful wine, and with so much future potential. Extraordinary."

"Stunning purity of lychee and rose-water aromas here with fresh bread, wet stones and breathtaking fragrant appeal. The palate has a smooth-honed and layered, textural feel with supple, fleshy lychee and melon, as well as pear and honeysuckle. From biodynamically grown grapes."
