2017 King Valley Sylvaner/ Gewürztraminer
{Left-Field Blend}

winemaking

True field-blend – both varieties grow side-by-side in the rich volcanic soils in Whitfield. Picked and whole bunch pressed together direct to seasoned French barriques (half ) and stainless steel tank (half). The indigenous ferment and lasted about 10 days and peaked at a temperature of 26’C. Blend is Sylvaner 60% and Gewürztraminer 40%. No MLF and no lees stirring. No fining and no filtration. Bottling in December 2017. Ideal aperitif wine.

nose

Subtle perfume with smells of lavender, rose water and cardamom pods. Hints of pine nettles, wet slate and malt.

palate

Great attack and energy as the wine fills the palate. Light bodied with incredible finesse. Gentle, chalky phenolic combines with pronounced acid to scrape the palate clean at the finish of each sip. Flavours echo the aromas of lemon pith and rose water with a touch of malt on the finish.
