Speakeasy Gewürztraminer Adelaide Hills 2018


A fresh and quite elegant style of Gewürztraminer from the Adelaide Hills, the Kuitpo sub-region. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine stayed on lees for six months to enhance its flavours and complexity. Very pale yellow hue, the nose gives us notes of lavender and musk, rose petals and just a flick of Turkish Delight. This is quite a refined style of Gewürz and avoids the blowsiness that can afflict the variety. That said, it is not lacking in flavour, nor spicy notes. A soft palate with gentle acidity and medium length, although still quite taut. Enjoy it now and over the next couple of years.
