“Showing classic varietal aromas of rose petal, cinnamon and lychee, the off-dry palate has notes of ginger and orange blossom which linger with a flinty mineral freshness.” Olly Masters (Winemaker)

The 2019 season was a typical season in terms of heat but with unusually high rainfall and a lack of the north-west spring winds. The rains encouraged vigorous canopy development requiring vigilance to any disease was prevented. Conditions for flowering and fruit set were ideal for Misha’s Vineyard with a mild autumn with perfect weather to enable ripening. However it was a mixed season across the region with vineyards impacted by a severe frost early season (13th October) with temperatures at -4°C and three days of late frosts (6-8th April), which saw many vineyards scramble to harvest as canopies collapsed. This was certainly a year to be thankful for steep slopes and a frost-drained vineyard site. Growing Degree Days (GDDs) were 1149 and fruit for this wine was handpicked at 4.9 tonnes
per hectare.

Gewürztraminer is an extremely food-friendly wine that’s perfect with spicy food (Thai, Indian, and Mexican) as well as rich German-style schnitzel and sausages. It is also a particularly good match with pungent and soft cheeses, (oily) wild game, foie gras, and smoked salmon.
