About The Wine
A very different take on Gewurztraminer here from young Angus Vinden.
This variety is notorious for becoming caricatured and flabby. If you let it get away from you, Gewurz can become cloying and overly unctuous. Not the case here.
Some very cleaver winemaking from Gus, utilising extended maceration on skins and a portion fermented in a Spanish amphora, has given this an element of grip and crunch which keeps the wine focused and a little chewy.
Yes, it's wonderfully aromatic and a little cheeky, yet there's a little more than meets the eye of this interesting Hunter Valley white.
About Vinden Estate
Young Angus Vinden is the owner/winemaker of this much-loved Hunter Valley winery.
Having taken the reins from his father just a few years ago, Gus is reimagining his family's wine label with a string of exciting, modern wines coming out of his cellar.
He sources fruit from some of the Hunter's greatest vineyards, focusing on Semillon and Shiraz primarily as well as turning out a very good Tempranillo.
He's one of the young guns of the Hunter Valley that should have a close eye kept on him. His wines are on the up!
