Delatite Dead Mans Hill Gewurztraminer 2015
Specialising in cool climate wine, Delatite’s winery and vineyards are on rolling hills at the base of Mt Buller in north-east Victoria. It was established in 1968 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David. Our approach to winemaking has been forged from the family’s history of working with the land in Victoria for over 170 years.
The Estate Gewürztraminer fruit was all hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to retain the distinct flavours that Gewürztraminer is famous for. The juice was fermented in tank and in large oak puncheons, exclusively by wild yeast to increase the complexity and spiciness of the wine. It then spend six month on lees, in both tank and puncheons, being stirred every few weeks before bottling.
The 2015 ‘Deadman’s Hill’ shows the classic Turkish delight and musk characters that Delatite’s Gewürztraminer is renowned for. The perfumed nose hints at a wine that may be sweet but the palate shows that this is a classic dry Gewürztraminer with a crisp and clean finish.
