About

“Alsatian” inspired blends are becoming more and more popular, as Australian wine lovers look for food friendly wines that match our eating culture.

Hamish Young’s first venture into this wine style is faultless. He’s shrewdly started with some very fine fruit from the Freeman vineyard in the Hilltops region. Each parcel of Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Riesling was fermented separately to give himself complete control of the final blend.

The Gewurz hung out on skins for a week-long cold soak to, “draw out florals and really embrace the phenolics before pressing.”

This is one of the best put together examples of this wine style you are likely to find anywhere in the country.

With balance, zip and grip all in toe, this is a ripping wine.

What It Tastes Like

Beautiful aromatics of musk and Chanel No.5, lychee, quince. There’s sweetness to the fruit which is off set by a tart back palate. Clipped by citrus cleans things up nicely. Must be some time on skins, feels like the Gewurz is lending some grip. River rocks, japanese ginger and wasabi. Hard to imagine a better bottle to take along to a sushi train. Delish.
