Summerhill Pyramid Winery Gewurztraminer 2012

Member Review by zufrieden:

Winemaker Eric von Krosigk - in keeping with his roots and training, has produced a very German expression of Gewürztraminer; on the nose the usual spice from warmer climates is absent, but there are coy notes of canned lychee nut , pear and gooseberry. On the palate there is some icing sugar, though just a tad, and a creamy. unctuous, preserved lychee on the finish. This off-dry style used to be more common and as an exemplar of the type, very good. A great patio sipper. 88 points.

Summerhill ages barrels and finished wines in a geometrically precise Pyramid. Built with no ferrous metals, having no electricity in the chamber, and being aligned to True North, the Pyramid is the wine's temple. This aging period is the final step in the production process when the wine (which is alive, by the way) recovers from bottle shock and is infused with the music of the spheres. What is different inside a pyramid? How does it affect the wine and people inside? There are no easy answers to these questions. The Pyramid connects us to the unseen world of pure form, and to things surpassing the intellect's understanding. Read less
