2016 Flowstone Gewurztraminer

2016 Flowstone Gewurztraminer

'I truly have no idea how Stuart Pym conjures up so much varietal fruit flavour in the face of a theoretically unsuitable climate and almost baroque vinification. Heady spices soar out of the glass without coaxing'

DESCRIPTION
  • Hands down the best Gewurztraminer made in Australia. This is nothing short of a miraculous wine. It's not sweet, and yet its powerfully fragrant, with musk, cantaloupe, rose water and lychee on the nose, but then, for me, its the textural palate that grapples you the most. It's dry, but with an unrivalled freshness that is almost uncanny for this varietal. This is so easy to drink, and challenges all pre-conceived notions of what the Margaret River is capable of. 62 dozen made, and guess what, we wanted to take almost every single case of it. Hit. Win. Go for it.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The grapes were allowed to ripen to an extent where they express the full array of exotic flavours and spices. These grapes were hand harvested on the 20th March, and whole fruit pressed to retain texture.

    No acid addition was made. Fermentation was in old oak barrels (3 of them). Following fermentation, the wines stayed in these barrels for a further 15 months, with occassional stirring to suspend the lees. The barrels were blended in July of the following year. The wine was minimally fined, filtered and bottled. Bottling was done manually with a single head filler. The wine was then allowed to relax in bottle for a further 15 months prior to being made available for sale.

    Total production of 62 cases.

    Alcohol - 14.0%

  • REVIEWS

    'Whole-bunch pressed, fermented in three old barrels, matured for 15 months with occasional lees stirring. I truly have no idea how Stuart Pym conjures up so much varietal fruit flavour in the face of a theoretically unsuitable climate and almost baroque vinification. Heady spices soar out of the glass without coaxing, the palate layered and rich with hints of tropical fruits as well as orange/citrus.'
