2013 Gewürztraminer

The 2013 Gewürztraminer displays the varietal characteristics of spice, lychee, musk and rose water.

Dessert Zinfandel

The wine is deliberately sweet and very thick, like jam. The grapes are harvested extremely ripe and we allow the ferment to stop, leaving residual sugar and full grape flavours. It is great with anything chocolate.

Very limited amount due to drought.
