Winery Tasting Notes
Green-gold in colour.
An explosion of exotic aromas exhibiting rose petals, green lychee and Turkish delight with hints of green peppercorn and ginger spice.
The dry, crisp palate has rosehip and caraway notes supported by Chinese mint with a crunchy texture and excellent length.
The traminer grape originated in the Tramin area of the north-east of Italy. This variety has been grown for centuries in French Alsace and Germany. The German prefix gewürz, meaning spicy, is used when the wine exhibits an aromatic spicy character. The altitude, cool climate and deep loam soils of Eden Valley provide excellent conditions for this variety. The gewürztraminer vineyard is planted on well-drained deep sandy loam and silt. It is named after Joseph Hill Thyer who pioneered the first vines on this property in the early 1900s.
