2020 WHITEHAVEN MARLBOROUGH GEWÜRZTRAMINER 14.5%
Residual sugar: 15g/l
Grape variety: Gewürztraminer
The fruit was hand-picked, de-stemmed and held with the skins in the press for 24 hours. The free run and light pressings were combined and cold settled. The fermentations were carried out in stainless steel, and stopped with some residual sugar to aid texture and mouthfeel. The wine was aged on lees for 4 months before bottling in late September.
Colour / Appearance: Mid- deep straw, with a gold hue.
Aroma / Bouquet: Lifted notes of Turkish delight and ginger, with subtle hints of orange blossom and rose petal.
Palate: Rich and full bodied, this medium dry wine displays fine varietal characteristics. Turkish delight and spice notes are predominate, with underlying notes of ripe citrus and lychee.
Cellaring: This wine is ready to be drunk now or within six years of the vintage date.
Food Match: This wine is made to be enjoyed best with food. We recommend dishes with aromatic spices and flavours, such as Moroccan, Thai or Chinese dishes.
