The vineyard for this is directly opposite Lawson Dry Hills, highlighting the suitability of this area for Gewurztraminer. There's plenty to like about this – some rose petal, lychees – classic flavours on a lightly oily, unctuous, but not heavy palate.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Nose: musk | ginger | quince | spicy | pure | funky
Palate: textural | salty phenolics | pure | unctuous | rich |extroverted | dynamic
On the edge and definitely a wine that can work the room. All that spice with a story that keeps you listening long into the night."


Reviews for the 2016 vintage below…


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Raymond Chan, January 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is finely presented and concentrated with fresh, intense and penetrating aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight, musk and honey, and a subtle layering of root ginger. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features gently mouthfilling, aromatic flavours of rose-petals, exotic fruits and Turkish Delight, along with musk and notes of root ginger. The fruit has good depth and the mouthfeel combines a soft richness and oiliness balanced by fresh underlying acidity. The wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured line with some underlying alcohol drive, leading to a long and sustained, ethereally aromatic, spicy finish. This is a gently mouthfilling, exotic medium-dry Gewurztraminer with subtle richness and power. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4 years. Fruit from the ‘Kerseley Estate’, from vines planted in 2008, hand-picked and WBP, given skin contact, a portion indigenous yeast fermented in barrel to 14.5% alc. and 9.6 g/L RS. 500 dozen made."


91/100 Jamie Good, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Didn’t do this in 2017: it never got off the vine. 2-3% add back of skin ferment down to 8 brix. Lovely texture here with a nice spiciness and some grape, rose petal and Turkish delight. Has a bit of grip under the smooth fruit. Really compelling with some sweetness on the finish."


90/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Distinctive fragrances of spices and crushed fruits with ginger and clove then apples and white peaches, baked pineapple then flowers. On the palate – creamy, juicy, fleshy, round and soft; flavours of white fleshed fruits, spice and some stony mineral qualities; medium acidity, warming alcohol, lovely balance and length. Drink now and through 2020."
