Our first Orange made from 100% Organic & Biodynamic hand-picked Gewürztraminer. This wine began with a love of the fields, maturing to the delightfully expressive 'cosmic' of Krinklewood Estate.
It tastes of this very earth - the climate, the water, the sunshine, the soil.
This 2021 Orange wine displays beautiful aromas of rose petals and lychee with a more complex profile of cinnamon and all spices.
The palate is rich of notes of grapefruit, tangerine and ginger with a complex tannic structure given from both the long skin contact period and the wooden vessel the wine fermented into.
Drink this wine young to enjoy in all its potential.
This wine is unfiltered & may appear cloudy in the glass.

- Winemaking Notes
This wine was made with 100 % Biodynamic Gewurztraminer from the Krinklewood site.
The fruit was hand picked and chilled to 5 degrees then foot stomped gently into out 1 tone Italian Cuvee´.
Utilising indigenous Krinklewood yeast grown from fruit gathered a few days earlier in the vineyards the fruit fermented and then was stored on skin for more then one month giving to the wine the most beautiful pale Orange colour.
The wine was then gently pressed into our basket press and quickly hand bottled in our winery to retain all the freshness, the aromatic and the colour that the Gewurztraminer is so famous for.
"Gewurz fermented on skins. New deals from Krinklewood. An elevation for the vineyard and winemaking styles with new ownership. New era. It’s cool.
A bit of spritz here but feels real nice. Candied mixed peel, green herbs, powdery tannin and a blast of grapefruity acidity. Lively, chewy, fresh and youthful. High drinkability and good sense of interest. Skinsy chew very pleasingly. Good gear on a lighter shade of orange".
