  • $55.00

A 50/50 blend of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. The skins were left in
contact with the wine for just under a year, 355 days to be exact. Fermented usingnatural yeast with light punchdowns during fermentation for gentle extraction from the skins. When dry the tank was sealed and opened only a handful of times during  the year. Full natural malo. It was pressed using a small basket press, racked once and bottled after a short time aging in tank. Bottled with fine lees and without sulphur. Bottled in late October of 2017.
A beautiful rusted orange in colour, this wine has a bold nose of dried clementine, black pepper and smoky lemon. Juicy and concentrated on the palate with powerful tannins and notes of hazelnuts on the finish.
