2018 Phoenix VQA
2018 Phoenix $18.95
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 value-packed, limited-production gem leaps from the glass with aromas of rosewater, piquant spice and floral notes. It spreads over the palate creamy smooth, even a bit oily with generous texture and fabulous balance showcasing palate flavours of citrus tang, ripe nectarine and sharp, fresh ginger root. It’s absolutely delicious with a dry, lengthy, mouth-watering finish and a tell-tale gewürztraminer bite on the aftertaste. Remove from the frig 20 minutes before serving and pour with grilled and buttered prawns or lightly spiced chicken wings.” Vic Harradine 91 points May 20, 2019
