2011 Elephant Hill Gewurztraminer
This, our first release of Gewurztraminer, is another example of the fine aromatic wines from our coastal vineyard. It’s more spicy than floral, beautifully balanced, textural, full-bodied and has a lingering finish. Especially good with spicy foods.
2011 was a challenging year but with our hand-picking and hand-sorting we were able to select excellent fruit. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed in our basket press which is a delicate process to keep all those wonderful aromatic characters of this variety. 10% of the juice was barrel-fermented; the rest in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks. It was then blended and put back to one-year-old oak for four months with minimum lees stirring. As usual with our wines, there is minimal filtering and fining.
A 10% discount is offered on all case purchases (12 bottles), this saving will be applied once 12+ bottles have been added to the shopping cart.
