Grape - Gewurztraminer
Where - Moravia, Czech Republic
What - We've been raving about the Herr Gewurtz for a while now and we're still going. It comes to us from Krasna Hora; a small production winery near the Slovakian border amongst the volcanic foothills of Moravia. The winery was originally built by the soviets, but after a huge revamp it is now recognised worldwide for producing enthralling wines that have a contemporary feel about them. This wine is a Wolf Wine favourite, for sure.
Herr Gewurtz is a skin contact Gewurztraminer. After destemming and crushing, the juice is fermented on wild yeasts and macerated on its skins for 1 month before a further 4 months of aging on its sediment.
This is proper orange wine bursting with notes of rose, geranium, biscuits, lychee and baking ginger.
Contemporary, racy, complex. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 12% ABV.
