|Bottles per case:||6|

Colour: Pale bronze, with a hint yellow gold
Bouquet: Classic cool climate gewürztraminer with maritime charm, the aromas are confectionery, reminiscent of freshly peeled lychees, rose water, Turkish delight, musk and the fragrant perfume of exotic potpourri flowers.
Palate: Beautifully balanced, delicate and persistent flavours that linger, this full-bodied wine displays a rich exotic blend of lychee, musk, sweet ginger spice, quince, Turkish delight and lush tropical fruits. A seductive wine offering, delicacy and balance, with depth and flavour concentration distinctive for the region. The finish is dry but beautifully integrated by both fruit and the gentle cleansing mineral acidity and quartz on the finish.
Ageing potential: 2016 to 2020 with likely best year being 2017.
Food suggestions: The flavours of this wine allow it to match well with an array of spicy foods - smoked chicken with a tangy mustard sauce, Thai red fish curry, ravioli stuffed with shrimp and topped with sweet red or yellow pepper sauce, chili and prawn risotto, roast duckling, pan-grilled lamb with walnut-mint pesto. Gewürztraminer is a versatile wine that will match well with an array of spicy cuisine.
