Rose, musk and spice aromas, along with a palate that is crisp and zesty with lime and lychee flavours and a touch of spice.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine has a very pale straw colour with a subtle green hue to the edge.
The wine has lifted aromas of rosewater and lychees with a touch of spice and lemon zest.
The palate delivers equally pleasing flavours of fresh lemon juice, rosewater and a touch of spice. The wine exhibits delightful delicacy across the palate and mouth-watering acidity on the back palate which delivers a crisp, clean finish.
This wine has been crafted for immediate enjoyment but will also reward cellaring under ideal conditions up to and possibly beyond 2013.

Gewurtztraminer has plenty to offer in summer with lifted florals like rose petals and often an intriguing exotic spice as well. Here all are kept nicely together with a bowl full of tropical fruit flavours lychee definitely and lime juiciness to finish. Newcomers might see it more like a fragrant moscato without the fizz.

Wine of the Week
This Clare Valley white wine offers typical gewurztraminer aromas of lychee, rose petals and spice and while it lacks the pungent impact of the Alsace version, it's still pleasantly varietal. The palate is smooth and fragrant, with good depth and persistence, finishing clean and fresh.

Lovely floral/musky nose and very dry, aperitif style palate with crisp melon flavours.

This is one of those pretty wines that you will keep coming back to. While it is dry, it is sweeetly perfumed with spicy rose and tropical lychee that are typical for wines made from this big-hearted grape. Matching the richness on the nose, the plush fruit bursts onto the palate immediately, making you slow down to literally 'smell the roses'. Try this wine with a fragrant Thai chicken salad or salt and pepper squid.
