For drinking in the park. Made ignoring the rules we suggest you embrace the same spirit in the drinking.
It’s Gewürztraminer. Impossible to pronounce but easy to swallow.
Park Wine has no rules. It’s for fun, enjoyment and a laugh when you pull out the bottle. Preconceived ideas exist all around. The notion of Gewürztraminer as a sweet wine is one of those strongest notions. We’re challenging the generally accepted style of this variety by making a skin-contact white, so dry it’s like walking barefoot through the desert.
Find a park. No fancy glass is needed.
Gewürtz has the most informative aromatics you'll find in the world of wine. Bright and lively, it's as if you've rushed into a Turkish delight factory. An assault on the senses.
Rosewater, musk lolly, candied honey, dried mango, orange rind and white flowers smash headlong into meyer lemon and crystalised ginger. Head exploding emoji!
Made like red wine, we allowed wild fermentation, leaving the wine in contact with the skins for 10 days. Picked a little earlier than some might, the battle is to keep it focussed after all that time on skins.
