Mike Garland, Castelli winemaker, is one of a handful of producers pushing Gewürztraminer into new directions. With the Empirica Gewürztraminer he ferments a portion in oak, does some work with lees, looking to add some textural intrigue to this highly distinctive variety. James Halliday was a big fan of this release awarding it 95 points. It's a big mouthful of wine with loads of interest. If you are looking for either a highly aromatic or a powerful, textural white, this is will hit the nail on the head.

What it Tastes Like

"Includes 8% riesling; hand-picked, wild yeast, part fermented in French oak, part in stainless steel, 4 months on lees. I really like this wine, not so much for its varietal expression as much as the overall balance, harmony and juicy mouthfeel, flavours of lemon and lime zest woven through a gossamer touch of oak." - James Halliday
