OCHOTA BARRELS WEIRD BERRIES IN THE WOODS GEWURZTRAMINER 2016/2017

Wine Region: Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape: Gewurztraminer

Tasting Notes

Not your typical Gewurz! It still has the pretty Turkish delight nose, typical of Gew, but with a lively fresh palate with good acidity. A new way to drink aromatic wines.Lychee, tangello blossom, lavender, miya lemon and manuka honey can be detected far from the glass. A rose petal infused lemongrass entry followed by chalky, mandarin skinned texture, forming a foundation for the jasmine and ginger infused nervy acid line which finishes long and bright.

From his home in the beautiful Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills, Taras and his wife Amber craft small batches of wine from surrounding vineyards in the Hills and special sites across McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley.
