Pegasus Bay Gewürztraminer
On release, the wine is bright lemon in colour. The bouquet is a salvo of lychee, quince and sweet rose perfume, framed with hints of ginger, beeswax and fragrant spice. Due to the varietal intensity of Gewürz, some additional winemaking techniques have been employed to give the wine extra complexity. Skin contact and fermenting with solids provide increased structure and a subtle hint of struck match, while the oak aging and lees contact adds mouthfeel. On the palate it is fleshy and succulent, with ripe phenolics and a whisp of bittersweet fruit kernel that complement the wine’s off-dry style, setting up for a long and satisfying finish.
