Traminer Riesling is a delicious blend of two of the world's most expressive and flavoursome grape varieties. Traminer - also known as Gewürztraminer - has a spicy, tropical fruit aroma reminiscent of lychees and an exotic scent, with a generous, soft palate. The Riesling component adds elegance to the finish, with lifted, floral flavours and a fine acidity which balances the wine to perfection.
The fruit was primarily selected from our vineyards located in the Hunter Valley and McLaren Vale regions, with some fruit from the Murray River Valley. The Riesling is predominantly South Australian. The Gewürztraminer was grown at our Denman vineyard in the Upper Hunter. Overall these regions experienced fine conditions during the 2000 vintage resulting in fruit of exceptional quality and depth of flavour. All of the grapes were harvested in the cool of the night and early morning to ensure retention of fresh, fruity flavours.
