Awards & Reviews

Michael Cooper - Five stars

One of the country's most impressive Gew?¬rztraminers. Grown on the Home block and near Woodward vineyards. Mostly fermented in stainless steel tanks; a key part of the blend (about 15%) is given 'the full treatment', with a high-solids, indigenous yeast ferment in seasoned French oak barriques, malolactic fermentation and lee-stirring. The 2016 vintage is benchmark stuff, bright, light lemon/green. It is weighty and well rounded, with generous, youthful peach, pear, lychee, spice flavours and a rich, slightly sweet (7.5grams/litre of residual sugar) very harmonious finish. It's already delicious.
