2023 Phoenix VQA


A phoenix is a mythical bird that dies in flames and is reborn from its ashes. Phoenix – like, the Gewürztraminer vines we believed dead from cold winter burn arose again to produce a remarkable wine with lychee and rosewater aromas, grapefruit notes and a little spice. This classic dry Gewürztraminer is a testament to sun, time and the renewal of life.

‘This has a pink-bronze hue in the glass while aromas of rosewater jump from the glass interwoven with tinned lychee fruit—they are preserved in a liquid that contains rosewater. Palate flavours of blood orange and peel marmalade are joined by apricot jelly and hints of Turkish delight confectionary. This is a match made in heaven when served with a baked, bone in ham glazed with a mixture of brown sugar and maple syrup with powdered ginger root and a few lines of cloves pierced into the ham.” Vic Harradine April 26, 2021; 92 points; 2020 Phoenix
