Neethlingshof Gewurztraminer 2020

Colour: Medium lemon

Aroma: A bouquet of Turkish Delight, rose petals, honeysuckle and hints of sweet baking spices.

Palate: Offers an initial sweetness with spicy flavours on the palate. Some litchi and kiwi fruit characters come to the fore and the wine boasts a sophisticated acidity with a wonderful long finish.

An ideal companion to spicy food, curries and Asian dishes and also makes a good partner to fruity desserts.

ageing : Zesty and vibrant in its youth, this wine has an enviable reputation of “ripening” exquisitely as it develops in complexity with cellaring for up to five years – and even longer for those who enjoy the subtleties of mature wines.

in the vineyard : The trellised Gewurtstraminer vines, planted in 1988 and grafted onto Richter 99 rootstocks, are established in deep red Tukulu and Oakleaf soils on the southern slopes of the Estate, facing nearby False Bay. Cool aquatic airflow off False Bay during the summer months tempers the temperature and slows the ripening of the grapes, resulting in more intense flavours in the wine.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand in late February at an average sugar level of  23.5° B.

in the cellar : After clarification of the juice, inoculation with a selected yeast started the fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The fermentation temperature was controlled at around 14°C and lasted for  18 days before the wine was racked and readied for bottling.
