About The Wine
Jared Dixon is the Lone Ranger of Northern NSW, out on a limb making some of the most creatively conceived wines in all of the state.
His Gewürztraminer walks to its own beat. This is hand harvested Gewürztraminer basket pressed to old barrels and left on lees to gather texture without the overt unctuous characters the variety can be prone too.
He's looking to tame the Gewürz beast here. Keep the aromatic lift but smooth out the edges of the variety.
It's a wine not so much for the die-hard Gewürz fans, but for those who like the weird and wonderful. Intriguing wine and delicious to boot.
About Jilly Wines
Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.
His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine.
They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.
Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.
