Barossa - Eden Valley Gewürztraminer

Vineyard: Grown from old vines in the Fechner family vineyard located in the northern end of Eden Valley, known as Moculta. A new wine variety from Chaffey Bros Wine Co. has been released. Sourced from single vineyard is the handpicked. 100% Gewurztraminer.

Season: Eden Valley received good winter rains which set the growing season off to a good start. Flowering was consistent with bunches setting well and generous quantities expected. Summer was warm and dry with the added benefit of Eden Valley's high altitude allowing cool evening's and breezes to assist with wine grapes maintaining freshness and high levels of natural acidity.
