Park Wine has no rules. It's for fun, enjoyment and a laugh when you pull out the bottle. Preconceived ideas exist all around. The notion of Gewürztraminer as a sweet wine is one of those strongest notions. We're challenging the generally accepted style of this variety by making a skin-contact white, so dry it's like walking barefoot through the desert.
Gewürtz has the most informative aromatics you'll find in the world of wine. Bright and lively, it's as if you've rushed into a Turkish delight factory. An assault on the senses.
Made like a red wine, we allowed wild fermentation, leaving the wine in contact with the skins for 14 days. Picked a little earlier than some might, the battle is to keep it focussed after all that time on skins. Pressed to old oak barrels where it stayed for the next 3 months, then bottled directly from the barrels, no fancy filters.
