La Violetta Ü (Rock Dots) Gewurztraminer Riesling Grauburgunder 2014

The Ü (Rock Dots) almost didn’t happen in 2014, according to winemaker Andrew Hoadley, as the Great Southern source of Forest Hill almost had no gewurztraminer for him – last minute, and a reprieve that saw some fruit come in for this wine. Already naturally-fermenting riesling is tipped into the gewurz and pinot gris (grauburgunder) combo, and the wine sees some short skin contact for interest. It sees on lees for a spell too.
