Saint Clair 2013 Vintage

Saint Clair
Godfrey's Creek Reserve Gewürztraminer 2013

Luscious stone fruit and ripe melon laced with Turkish delight, ginger and cinnamon.

Winemaker:

Matt Thomson and Hamish Clark

Colour:

Pale gold

Aroma:

Turkish delight, peach, cinnamon and floral notes.

Palate:

Luscious stone fruit, ripe melon and fresh ginger with a hint of spice biscuits.

Ageing potential:

Drinking well now, this wine will continue to evolve and reward for the next three to five years.

Winemaking:

Grapes are left to soak for an extended period to assist in extraction of flavours from skins. Post pressing settled clear juice is fermented with aromatic yeast which enhances the varietal expression of the wine.

Viticulture:

Grapes were sourced from Godfrey’s Creek vineyard in Marlborough’s Brancott Valley. This low cropping, immaculately tended vineyard produces fruit with intense varietal expression. The grapes were picked at night at the peak of flavour development.

Analysis:

Alcohol: 13.00% v/v, Titratable Acidity: 4.80 g/litre, Residual Sugar: 11.00 g/L, pH: 3.67.

Food match:

Well matched with dishes flavoured with aromatic spices such as Indian curry or gingerbread.
