Grant Burge Eden Valley Gewürztraminer

Cracka Review

A light straw in colour with green highlights. On the nose it shows incredibly spicy, upfront fruit with obvious lychee-like characters. While not as pungent as the gewurztraminers of Alsace, the aroma shows many of the characters of that region.

The palate is soft, round and quite viscous. The spiciness follows through the bouquet and provides persistent lingering palate flavour.The combination of smooth, glycerol-like viscosity and fresh acidity produces a white wine of great depth and length. While this wine is attractive in its youth, like the gewurztraminers of Alsace, it will be drinking at its best at three or four years of age.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; the moderately intense bouquet has positive lychee and spice varietal aromas, the palate good weight, length and acidity. One of a handful of serious examples of Gewurztraminer in Australia, with promising short-term development.
