Anchorage Nelson Reserve Gewurztraminer 2017


WINE: Reserve Gewürztraminer 2017

REGION: Nelson

STYLE: off dry

VINEYARD: Fruit for our 2017 Gewurztraminer was sources from two sites, our Flett Road Vineyard in the Moutere and from a vineyard in Riwaka close to the Motueka river mouth.

WINEMAKING: The fruit was machine harvested early in the morning whilst the grapes are still cool to lock in those perfumed aromas. The grapes were processed and crushed and left sitting on skins for several hours before pressing. Treated that way the juice takes up all the perfumed flavours from the delicate skin and paired with a slow cold ferment we manged to keep all those floral flavours.

APPEARANCE: Very pale yellow, with light green hues on the rim

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The delicate perfume of rose petals, jasmine and orange blossom with a subtle hint of Turkish delight and lychee lead to soft and lingering finish

PALATE: With a restraint balance of natural residual sweetness and a low acid our Gewürztraminer enhances the floral and spicy flavours that make this variety so unique.

ACCOMPANIMENTS: Gewürztraminer does compliment Asian food with its floral flavours and ginger like spicy character.

Anchorage Viognier 2015

WINE: Viognier 2015


REGION: Nelson


STYLE: Dry


VINEYARD:

Our Viognier is a single Vineyard wine, made with fruit from our Flett Road Vineyard. Grown on Moutere clay based soil the grapes started to show a very ripe flavour profile early on and allowed us to harvest the grapes without the usually very high sugar levels. As a result we were able to pick flavour full grapes without the potential of getting a very high Alcohol level and distract from the lovely fruity character.

WINEMAKING:

After gently processing the fruit, the resulting juice was chilled and left to settle for a few days. The juice was then racked with some light sediment, inoculated with a cool fermenting yeast strain the ferment was taken to a just off dry level the wine chilled and left to settle with some oak. Once the wine had cleared it was left to warm up and finish ferment a little malolactic ferment as well. This allowed this relatively low in alcohol wine to gain some more character and body.


APPEARANCE: Very bright and clear, pale yellow with hints of lemon green hues.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS:

Apricot and ginger with some floral notes and a subtle hint of dark chocolate make this wine very interesting and show some intriguing complexity.


PALATE: Apricot and peach seem also lead the way on the palate, combining with some hints of chocolate and a slight creamy texture. The dryness of the wine gets nicely balanced with a low harmonious acid.


ACCOMPANIMENTS:

As an Aperitif or just because you feel like a tipple or you may want to try it with a roast vegetable and walnut salad.

TECHNICAL NOTES:
