Delatite Dead Mans Hill Gewurztraminer CONFIRM VINTAGE

Gewurtztraminer was one of Delatite's first plantings, it has continued to deliver the most memorable, award winning vintages. Deadman's Hill is widely regarded as the benchmark in Australia, the first Traminer ever to be selected for Qantas International First Class. Deadman's Hill is a hundred metres higher than the other vineyards at Delatite and has been dry grown for most of it's life. It was the first part of the vineyard to be converted to Bio Dynamics and like all other blocks at Delatite, it is completely pruned and picked by hand.

The steep ironstone slopes and crisp mountain airs at Delatite provide an idyllic mesoclime for the spicey Gewurtztraminer, which demands slow ripening to develop fully. Hand pruned, hand picked and patiently sorted by the winemakers themselves, fruit is whole bunch pressed, the musts are chilled and left in the press for a term of cold soak. Some of the settling lees are retained within the clear juices as indigenous yeasts begin a wild ferment, slow and cool for a month. A component is treated to vinification in larger format oak vats for richness and complexity. Batches are held on lees for with periodic stirring to infuse yeast autolysis, bottled with minimum fuss for the retention of pure varietal charm.
A straw coloured wine. The aromas are a melange of cinnamon and clove, rose petal, lychee and musk which follow through to the richly flavoured palate. Flavours of hazelnut and toast, cardammon, lychee and ginger biscuit, clove and turkish delights. Decidedly Traminer, a wine which deserves to be appreciated today alongside crustacea, Asian recipes and all spiced faire.
