Libiamo Gewurztraminer Gisborne 2020

$41.99

Grown in the Riverpoint vineyard, the grapes are hand harvested and gently de-stemmed into upright wooden vessels sourced from France. Here the fruit sits and assimilates its origins and the surrounding resonance of the people who care for it. Nothing is added, nothing is taken away. No temperature control. No yeasts. Fermentation is assisted by careful mixing of the grapes and their juices.  Fermented 66 days on skins. When the vigour has settled, a cover is used to keep it warm and safe. At a later time the wine is pressed to barrels and left to sit until Spring, when it is then taken away from its sediments, settled and bottled, without filtration. Minimal sulphur is used throughout. Closed with natural cork, because we prefer it this way, it also adds to the five phenolics of taste, and upon opening makes a sound which is less heard of in these modern times and still makes your mouth water...

This wine is lifted with hints of cardamom, fennel seed and turmeric. A Moroccan market spice delight. There is an adoring complexity, rich with sweet sensations. It is cloudy from natural sediments, soft yet drying to the taste. It smells very clearly of its origins in terms of place and fruit. There is deep spice and almost waxy root crops, yet with lively pink rose aromas. It isn?t quaint, nor is it fruity. The taste is long and intense. Once opened, this wine will last, even improve, for a number of days afterwards, so take your time, savour and drink in moderation, with love and gratitude, but always remember to keep another bottle handy!

Wine from BioGro Certified Organic and Demeter Certified Biodynamic Grapes.
