Big Table Farm Edelzwicker 2015
Similar to the 2014 and still from the same 'old vine' blocks of Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris at the Wirtz vineyard, gives the wine a warm spice to go with all the floral and fruit components.
Barrel fermented in neutral oak to dryness and malolactic complete, and per usual, bottled without any filtration or fining.
Opaque, medium lemon color. This wine opens up showing the Gewurztraminer, white tea, lemon tart candies, lychee and straw and the first notes. The palate is viscous with chalky tannins helping to focus the wines texture. The finish has a profound energy that feeds off the mineral sensation. The acid is balanced by the weight of Pinot Gris that carries through the whole palate.
