About The Wine

Gewurztraminer is one variety that seems to take well to a bit of work in the winery, and this release from Barney Flanders' new 'Cotier' label is a great example of what makes good Gewurz - when done well - so damn delicious.

Picked early to return freshness, then made with 100% whole bunches, 9 months in old oak and then bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur, this is wildly conceived and wildly delicious.

If you're a fan of Gewurztraminer or just textural whites then you'll love this. Great fun.

About Garagiste

Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders. After leaving Allied Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula.

Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines.

They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

A magic nose of lifted spicy, floral, honey, cardamom, roses and lychee notes. Exotic and uber-seductive. In the mouth there is a wonderful balance of fresh, floral and rose petal fruit, pulpy texture and then some skinsy tannins to balance out the exotic core of the wine very nicely. There is also terrific freshness and a savoury drive on offer given the variety. Delicious stuff. - Different Drop Wine Team
