Shows the unmistakable floral, rose petal aromas and flavours of pure Gewurztraminer fruit, sometimes also reminiscent of passionfruit or lychees. It has a strength of character without being oily or overpowering, is intensely fruity but dry on the finish and has good balancing acidity.

The perfect accompaniment to spicy Eastern dishes where its ripe fruit and textured mouthfeel are a great foil to strong spices.

The Clare Valley is perfect for ripening aromatic white varietals as the evenings are quite cool and help to build up intense aroma compounds. Fruit is sourced exclusively from the Skillogalee estate, the vineyard yielding around 35 hl/ha. After harvesting, the grapes are allowed a few hours skin contact before crushing and chilling with an overnight settle in tank. The juice is racked off the gross lees and fermentation continues at a cool, controlled temperature in tank. Bottled in June 2004 then aged in bottle before shipping. Only 400 cases made annually.
