Askerne Estate Reserve Gewürztraminer 2021 750ml
WINEMAKING NOTES
 
 
This wine is a blend of two standout Gewürztraminer
clones, 456 (74%) and 1106 (26%). A low yielding
crop of optimally ripe fruit was harvested in early
April 2021. With minimal skin contact the juice was
pressed off to tank and divided up into different
ferments. A variety of different yeasts were used to
get the best out of the Gewurztraminer aromatics and
ferment was stopped with medium dry sweetness.
Racked and aged on light lees for 6 months before
blending. The best components were chosen to make
up this Reserve blend.

TASTING NOTES
 
Concentrated aromatics of lychee, honeysuckle and
tropical fruit, rose florals and savoury ginger spice
with a hint of lemon curd. The concentrated palate is
mouth filling and luscious, with a backbone of rich
spice and balanced acidity with off dry sweetness,
textured and complex through to the finish.
