Tropical aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and mango are followed by the same flavours on the palate, which is surprisingly crisp given the ripe tropical aromas. This is a very fresh, and refreshing, yet ripe style of Gewu╠łrztraminer; a rare achievement for this grape.

Growing Conditions

Throughout the entire 2012 growing season, the vines were perpetually about a week behind. In the end, however, the autumn harvest season was long, dry, and warm giving the vintage all the ripeness it needed.

Winemaking

Whole cluster sorting was followed by de-steming, berry sorting, and crushing into the press. A short cold soak on skins was allowed prior to gentle pressing. Juice was settled, racked, and fermented at 15 degrees Celsius over 3 weeks. No sur-lie ageing was done on this wine.
