2018 Gewürztraminer


We embrace Gewurztraminer’s bold, in-your-face character by nurturing it carefully in the cellar. The naturally low-cropping vines combined with the cool summer and fall resulted in a bit more ripeness and richness and less overt floral characters than past vintages. We kept it in stainless steel to retain the aromatics and retained 9.5 g of residual sugar to give it some lushness and weight.

Tasting Notes
More pear and tropical melon than in previous vintages. Richness on the full and weighty palate. Off-dry, but great balance with the acidity and fruit intensity.

Vineyard Notes
Above average growing degree days in the spring contributed to an early budbreak. Cooler days and evenings arrived in August, which slowed down the ripening of the grapes and allowed for greater flavour development while retaining freshness and acidity.
