- Fragrance of aromatic rose petals, creaming soda and Turkish delight.
- The palate finishes in an off-dry style with an appealing balance of acidity and sweetness.
FOOD AND WINE MATCH:
While ideal for celebrations and the summer barbeque, Lindauer Summer will pair well with a cheese board, pate’s and relishes, desserts or Spanish-styled Tapa’s.
Lindauer Summer is designed to be drunk upon release and is best enjoyed whilst the fruit flavours are fresh and vibrant.
Gisbornes early, long and sunny growing season is perfect for growing the aromatic grapes used in this wine: predominantly Gewurztraminer with Arneis, Viognier and Pinot Gris. 2014 was a fantastic vintage in Gisborne: one of the best even better than 2013. Early ripening captures the acidity and distinctive freshness of cool climate growing conditions. Later harvested aromatic fruit from Gisborne’s famed low yielding premium vineyards provide the sun ripened fruit to produce an intensely aromatic wine. Rich clay soils add texture while the summer heat builds varietal ripeness and intensity in the grapes.
Grapes were harvested at an optimum balance between fruit, flavour, acidity and sweetness. The juice was fermented slowly in stainless steel, using a number of aromatic yeasts at moderated temperatures to retain the very distinctive regional and varietal characters.
