Pale bronze with a hint of yellow gold colour, and a fragrant perfume of exotic potpourri flowers. This wine is beautifully balanced and delicate, with persistent flavours that linger. It is full-bodied displaying a rich exotic blend of lychee, musk, sweet ginger spice, quince, Turkish delight and lush tropical fruits. A seductive wine with depth and flavour concentration distinctive for the region. The finish is dry but beautifully integrated by both fruit and the gentle cleansing mineral acidity and quartz on the finish. The flavours of this wine allow it to match well with an array of spicy foods - smoked chicken with a tangy mustard sauce, Thai red fish curry, chili and prawn risotto and the list goes on. Gewürztraminer is a versatile wine that will match well with an array of spicy cuisine.

Pipers Brook Vineyards
Established in 1974, Pipers Brook Vineyard has grown to become an icon of the Tasmanian wine industry with an international reputation for producing cool climate wines of exceptional quality. Tasmania is renowned for its pristine environment; it is home to some of the world’s purest air and water and the climate creates ideal conditions for the production of cool climate sparkling and table wines. The dedicated viticultural and winemaking team aim to produce wines that are expressive of the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard. Founded in Belgium in 1797, G & C Kreglinger has long been committed to quality and excellence. In 2002, privately owned Kreglinger Wine Estates acquired Pipers Brook Vineyard and Ninth Island and in the time since has been able to combine two centuries of European heritage with uncompromising viticultural and winemaking practices to confirm Kreglinger Wine Estates as producers of cool climate wines of the highest calibre. Pipers Brook wines are entirely estate grown and bottled. This allows Kreglinger Wine Estates to achieve the utmost integrity of product, ensuring that each wine is a reflection of both the vintage and region of origin. Kreglinger Wine Estates continue their uncompromising stance in regard to vineyard site, block selection and viticultural and winemaking practices.
