Why we like it
AJ Hoadley, he's a legend around these parts and this wine is another cracker from his stable. A blend of (mostly) Gewürztraminer and Riesling, with ﬂavour, freshness and delicacy. Hand harvested, destemmed and given a few hours skin contact, then pressed off to tank without sulphur to start fermenting. A splash of 100% whole bunch co-fermented pinots noir & gris adds the griserie, a subliminal copper hue, accentuating the colour picked up from gewürz skin contact.
Big perfume and fun phenolic texture on this unusual blend. Rosewater, orange blossom aroma, lots of alluring fruit on the palate. Super interesting without being too mind-bending. Cool, clean and crisp with some nice weight.
