Interloper Gewürztraminer

Interloper Gewürztraminer Image

We first planted Gewürztraminer here in the South Field in 1996. It’s always been special fruit, but in a past life, we blended it in with fruit from other vineyards. But now as an 100% estate grown wine, we have a chance to see just how special it is. The cool to start, warm to finish 2017 vintage was good to our Gewürztraminer allowing for lengthy hang time in the vineyard that let its spicy flavour profile develop well. Then we fermented it a long, slow, and cool twenty five days to be gentle with its delicate floral aromatics. The 2017 Interloper is a substantial, weighty Gewürztraminer with real presence in the glass, and a taste of things to come.
