Grape - Gewurztraminer
Where - Oregon, United States
What - Ovum was established back in 2011 and has since been smashing out white wines that are full of character and completely terroir-driven. This is easiest to do with whites, according to owners Ksenija and John House, who have earned a real reputation around the world for their flavourful, low intervention wines.
One of the secrets behind their success is the spontaneous fermentation that they take great care to ensure happens as naturally as possible. This can take weeks, months, years - however long, they have the patience to wait. This guarantees wine with rich, deep flavours and complex texture, so, well, it's worth it!
The Sunnyside is everything you want from a Gewurtraminer. And, given that this is a rare variety in the region, it's totally unusual. You might taste baked apple, golden kumquat, cherry blossom and echinacea. The textured, complex nature of this wine makes it ever-changing and it skips across the palate dropping fruity, aromatic notes wherever it goes.
