Petane Station & Dirtoir Present: 2016 Gewurztraminer Rose
This is our first collaboration wine (under our wine label Dirtoir) with good friends Philip and Sara @ Petane Station this rose is a spicy blend of Gewurztraminer and Syrah grown in Eskdale.
This unique wine was dreamed up one midsummer’s evening between two wine friends - Philip Barber from Petane Station and Jules van Costello from Dirtoir. The result is this delightful spicy rosé, made from a combination of gewürztraminer that has undergone extended skin contact to extract more colour and flavour and finished with a splash of syrah. With hand picked grapes from Petane Station’s Bellbird block, gentle basket pressing has teased out a big hit of orange peel on the nose, ginger spice and jasmine in the background and strawberries and cream on the palate.
