Jackson Triggs Reserve Riesling-Gewurztraminer
Our Reserve Riesling-Gewurztraminer is a blend of the best aromatic whites of the vintage. This wine displays lively floral and tropical fruit aromas with mineral notes. It has a fruit-forward flavour and a refreshing long finish. It has a well-balanced wine of exceptional quality.
The two components of this wine, Riesling and Gewürztraminer, were picked at optimum ripeness. The Gewürztraminer spent 24 hours with skin contact to extract the grape’s characteristic spicy and perfumed flavour and aroma profile. The Riesling was immediately gently pressed and both lots were then fermented separately in stainless steel tanks using selected yeast. After fermentation the two varieties were blended 60/40 to achieve a wine of great balance and complexity.
Food Pairing Notes
This lively, crisp blend tempts with luscious aromas of lychee, florals, tropical fruits, and citrus. With a hint of sweetness, the 2013 Riesling Gewurztraminer is the perfect match with Asian fusion, BBQ Teriyaki chicken, Szechuan ginger glazed salmon, and strong cheeses such as Muenster.
