The fruit was harvested by hand at 22˚ to 23˚ Balling. Skin contact was
allowed in the small press with cooling taking place for 12 hours to concentrate the
aromatic flavours so characteristic of the cultivar. The grapes were then gently pressed
and settled overnight and then racked off the lees. The clean juice was fermented
with a selected yeast strain at a low temperature. Fermentation was stopped when the
wine reached an optimal sugar, acid and alcohol balance, with the help of cooling.
The wine was then stabilised and prepared for bottling.
Country: South Africa
Tasting note: Bright golden yellow. Bouquet Typical Gewürztraminer nuances of rose petals and Turkish delight on the nose with alluring sweet litchi and pineapple notes. Palate Elegant, nuanced and well-balanced with floral notes flowing onto the palate. Its sweetness is more suggested than overt, enlivened by good acidity. It closes on a lovely, lingering finish.
