Overview

2016 saw a healthy crop of Gewürztraminer on the Melrose vineyard, with good bunch and berry size. The fruit for “Louisa” hung on the vines two months after the harvest for the dry style so flavour and sweetness in the fruit underwent a fair degree of concentration!

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma & Palate

The 2016 “Louisa” Gewürztraminer has lifted aromas of quinces, musk and lychee, with a generously sweet palate which finishes clean thanks to a nice line of acidity throughout.

Food Match

Perfectly balanced, intense yet delicate, enjoy before a meal or after with a platter of Tasmanian cheese like Grandvewe sapphire blue or a triple cream brie from Wicked cheese Richmond.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Spring Vale is situated at Cranbrook, north of Swansea on Tasmania's Freycinet Coast. The Freycinet Coast could otherwise be described as the mid East Coast, and Spring Vale is about in the middle of that.Continuing in the tradition of hard work and innovation established by William Lyne in 1826, Rodney and Lyn Lyne have planted 6.6 hectares of wine grapes at Spring Vale, principally Pinot Noir. The vineyard began in 1986, when a small area of two acres was planted to Pinot Noir. Further plantings were made in the following years: firstly, more Pinot Noir, then Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer, followed by Pinot Gris in 1996. In 2000, more Pinot Noir and a splash of Pinot Meunier was planted.In June 2007, Spring Vale purchased a neighbouring farm, "Melrose". The purpose of this purchase was to enable decent amounts of a lighter red to be produced, with the first "Melrose" Pinot Noir being the 2008 Vintage.
