More fruity than floral, the long-awaited new vintage of our Broken Granite Gewürztraminer glistens with a delicate hue of lime green.  Intense tropical fragrances of papaya, peach and lychee, reminiscent of a fruit cup packed in syrup, perfumed with just a delicate kiss of nutmeg and rose water.  The flavours perfectly mirror the aromas, enriched with a subtle nuance of ground coriander seed.  Described as ‘pear-shaped’, this wine really expands to fill the palate with round, rich viscosity and a long lingering dry finish.

This fruit comes from Block 12, where there is an abundance of broken granite in the soil, yielding grapes with more concentrated flavours.  We implemented a slower pressing program (6 hours), with minimal pressure increases at each step.  The juice was quite smooth, unctuous and rich, with very little phenolic extraction.  It was fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak (about 45% in 2-year old French oak barrels).  The barrels were stirred once a week until mid-January, at which time the stainless steel and barrel components were blended together for bottling.  This is definitely a wine to cellar for many years.
