GEWÜRZTRAMINER SKIN CONTACT 2020
Amazing aromas of lychee dominate the profile. Notes of grapefruit rind, rose water, honied cantaloupe and hints of spice complete the profile. The aromas carry to the palate – refined and not overwhelming with a zesty finish.
Moroccan spiced chicken kabobs, Thai coconut curry, crispy duck, pumpkin or squash dishes – stuffed ravioli, spicy coconut butternut squash soup or pumpkin gnocchi.
(geh-vurts-trah-meen-er) Originating in Alsace France, Alto Adige Italy and Germany this grape variety produces highly aromatic wines reminiscent of rose petals, lychee, apricot and can exhibit spice notes like clove and ginger. Wine styles range from full bodied dry wines to elegant dessert wines.
This is the first single variety Gewürztraminer that we have produced at Waupoos Estates since the mid 90s. The fruit came in beautfiul so we went for a skin contact white wine, this pulled beautiful copper tones to the finished wine and stunning aromatics. This showcases that spicy, exotic profile that Gewurz is so well known for. Despite the complexity this wine is easy drinking and bone dry at 3g/L residual sugar
