Little Wine Co 2017 Gewurz
Meaning spice in German, Gewurz is a fitting prefix for the distinctive Traminer grape. The grapes themselves are highly coloured just prior to harvest and often turn a deep golden copper. This somewhat brutish colour belies the delicate juice within. We have a long history of award-winning Gewurztraminer. Since 1984 we have won numerous trophies and medals for our unique style.
The making of Gewurz is all about retaining the grape’s natural aromas and flavours. We crush and press the grapes quickly, ferment the juice at 13ºC (we use only the free-run portion) and bottle the wine quick smart. With this variety, it’s all about the grape.
Banish the thoughts of the sweet, cloying Traminers of the 70’s. Our Gewurz is racy and restrained with a crisp dry finish. It captures the flavours of musk, Turkish Delight and lychees while maintaining a beautiful line of citrus flavour to the finish. Perfectly matched with Thai food or any dish with a bit of spice.
