2019 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.
“Rosewater and ginger aromas mingle with piquant spice on the nose of this medium-plus bodied, fully textured, oily and creamy-smooth gem. It coats the palate with viscous ambrosia riding delicious palate flavours of grilled pineapple, lemon curd and orange cordial. It has a monumentally long finish and aftertaste that’s balanced and beautiful. Pour with tandoori chicken or baked leg of butt-portion ham decorated with cloves and brushed with maple syrup.” Vic Harradine 92 points May 10, 2020
