The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Shuberts Road Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills planted by Brian McGuigan in 1997. The grapes for this wine were left on the vines for an extended period which allows for the increased accumulation of sugars for which dessert wines are renowned.
Famously known for its elegant blue bottle, the Late Picked Traminer now has a league of loyal followers. This late harvest Gewürztraminer was produced using Adelaide Hills fruit and has developed an extraordinary depth of flavour. The grapes for this wine were crushed and de-juiced prior to transportation to our Hunter Valley Winery. This juice was then inoculated with an aromatic yeast strain in a stainless-steel tank and allowed to ferment at 14 degrees Celsius, with the low temperature helping to retain freshness. Shortly after fermentation the wine was lightly fined and filtered in preparation for bottling.
