60% Geisenheim 318 + 40% Geisenheim 322
A very aromatic white wine – showcasing lots of stone fruit like peach and yellow plum. Notes of golden pineapple and mango add depth with a hint of sweet, reminiscent of a fun dip stick. The aromas carry to the palate with an off dry finish (15g/L).
Asian cuisine like green curry, spring rolls or Pad Thai, chicken dishes, watermelon Caprese appetizers.
Geisenheim (Guy-Zen-Hi-M) originates from Germany – specifically from The Geisenheim Institute. We grow two clones on the property, Geisenheim 322 and Geisenheim 318. 322 is a crossing of Seibel 7053 and Riesling, and 318 is a crossing of Riesling and Chancellor. Typically the Geisenheim variety has an aromatic profile of mineral, grapefruit, peach and hints of herbs. A light and lively variety that produces dry to sweet table wines. Love working with this aromatic variety! Often 322 has more Riesling characteristics – zesty, citrus and mineral. The other clone 318 always dominates with fuzzy peach candy notes – sounds crazy but it smells just like that favourite gummy candy!
An off dry blend of both Geisenheims! This wine showcases awesome fruit notes, lots of stone fruit then more tropical golden fruit notes come through. There is a sweetness to the bouquet that reminded me of the candy stick in fun dips (the best part about fun dip). The aromas all mesh nicely and the fruit carries to the palate with a clean finish.
