The variety has high natural sugar and the wines are white and usually off-dry, with a flamboyant bouquet of lychees. Indeed, Gewürztraminer and lychees share the same aroma compounds. Dry Gewürztraminers may also have aromas of roses, passion fruit and floral notes. It is not uncommon to notice some spritz (fine bubbles on the inside of the glass). Wikipedia
"Mouth-watering flavours with a zippy line of acidity. Bright and textural with lemon freshness. There is a contemporary savoury edge that adds interest and intrigue. Slides down easily. " Toni Paterson, The Real Review
"Slippery, lightly oily white of pear drop scents and flavours. Its pretty simple and very clean, quite perfumed. Glides well in the palate, delivers a nice hit of the variety without much complexity. " Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
Fresh, lively, & textured.
Low yields and handpicking. Cool fermentation in stainless steel is followed by four months on lees.
An elegant Chardonnay with complexity, texture and fine acidity. Delicate but full flavoured.
Wines by KT are small, lovingly cared for parcels of fruit that utilise traditional techniques in their creation. I’m passionate about the township of Watervale 5452 and am working with dry grown, sustainably farmed vineyards in the area. With gentle care from grapegrower to winemaker, working with both organic and biodynamic principles, it’s my intention to produce wines with drinkability and personality.
5452 by KT is sourced from both the peglidis vineyard and churinga vineyard riesling. This dry Riesling and its zesty fruit flavour, shows varietal citrus and punchy fruit characters with a crisp finish.
Sealed with a screwcap to ensure integrity of product, you can be confident that this wine will continue to reward you with careful cellaring.
This aromatic white wine interweaves the best aspects of three of our favourite varieties from the Adelaide Hills: Savagnin, Gewürztraminer and Petit Manseng. The Savagnin and Gewürztraminer contribute fresh flavours of passionfruit, pomegranate, and stonefruit as well as a green apple crunch. The savoury, slinky characters from barrel-fermented Petit Manseng provide a subtle counterpoint. It goes well with itself lightly chilled, but also complements a diverse range of foods.
Citrus and passionfruit nose with white stone fruit and a delightful light creaminess with the palate fresh and enticing on entry with citrus and light tropical notes. Mid palate shows wonderful depth of flavour from partial barrel fermentation in French Barriques. Finishing with great length and crisp acidity.
The intention with Minnow Creek is to maintain the goal of sourcing the best parcels of fruit in order to craft wines which continue to reflect the full flavoured generosity for which McLaren Vale is justifiably renowned.
Small scale winemaking allows Minnow Creek to assert complete control over the winemaking process from picking through to bottling, in order to provide Minnow Creek customers with the truest expression of the Vales regional flavours.
Our 2013 Chardonnay displays distinctive floral and lemon zesty aromas with hints of dried fruit and brioche. Unwooded with extended contact on lees, enjoy its freshness and long velvety finish.
Established in 2010 and based in Hahndorf in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, Mordrelle Wines is a family owned boutique wine producer. A small batch of sparkling wine was first created to celebrate Martin and Michelle’s marriage. This was how everything commenced.
Martin and Michelle Moran, and her family, David and Jane Dreckow, have created this wonderful brand. The wines in offer are outstanding bottle-fermented sparkling wines and stylish Chardonnays. All our reds are basket pressed and aged in oak barrels for over 12 months. We have made three different styles of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a recent powerful Malbec is about to be released. There are now available many old vintages of our sparkling wine blanc de blancs, hidding somewhere within the cellar.
Fiano is a variety that originates in Campagna Italy. climatically well suited to McLaren Vale, particularly as it retains excellent levels of natural acidity as the fruit ripens. Fiano has relatively small berries and thick skins perfect for creating a style with plenty of structure and texture. We've worked with the naturally generous phenolics by incorporating skin contact during fermentation and oxidatively handling the juice prior to barrel fermentation in old French oak. The result is a wine of fresh natural acidity, citrus and almond meal flavours with a full textural mouth fell.
Fermented in oak barrels for a duration of 7 months. On the nose there are notes of pear, melon, minerals with a subtle hint of herbs. On the palate it is refreshing, slightly sweet and with a zingy acidity. Well balanced with a little bitterness which gives it great structural character.
The winery is a project of Bodegas Godeval and Jorge Ordonez. It is located in the mountains next to El Barco de Valdeorras, in the province of Orense (Galicia), in the northwest of Spain. The 35 year-old Godello vineyards are located on the mountain slopes, and are therefore in terraces.
The 35 year old vines are grafted from centenary gnarled Godello vines planted by monks but now resides in the courtyard of the present day winery.
Godello is a white grape variety primarily found in northwest Spain and northern Portugal. The grape is capable of producing very fine white wines, and it is in the Valdeorras region that its greatest successes are seen, leading to a steady increase in plantings there.
Godello, in Jancis Robinson MW words', "combines the structure of white burgundy with the finesse of a juicily mineral grape".
APPEARANCE Brilliant, bright straw with a faint green edge
NOSE A dramatic and powerful nose that is constantly evolving in the glass. Amongst the descriptors are sublime fragrant citron and baby pineapple,while wild notes of lamb's fat and struck flint provide a beguiling complexity that lift the floral and spice fruit perfume and frame a stunning Heytesbury Chardonnay nose.
PALATE Super fine, textured and succulent with impeccable balance and poise driven by seamless natural acidity. Juicy white nectarine and preserved lemon puree form a strong fruit core which is embellished with flavours of spicy oak, lanolin and flint. Exhibits that wonderful and rare quality; power with restraint.
