This most ancient grape of the region is treated to some careful vinification that preserves its true varietal character. Grown on hillsides surrounding the villages of Entiklar and Kurtatsch, not far from the winery itself, the Gewürztraminer is allowed to get perfectly ripe. Vinified in a combination of stainless steel tanks and cement vats, the wine is matured on the fine lees for extra depth of character. The stainless steel preserves freshness while the cement allows the wine to breathe naturally. The final blend is a classic example of this variety.
Temperature-controlled fermentation at 68 °F in steel tanks is followed by a four-month aging on the fine lees in concrete vats prior to bottling.
Medium lemon in color with golden hues, this wine has aromas of stone fruits like peaches and apricots complemented by notes of honey, rose petals, candied fruits, cloves, and allspice. This is a fuller-bodied white with a long finish.
This wine is particularly well suited to pair with the cuisines of Southeast Asia, as well as lobster and other shellfish, and even foie gras.
