Limited Release

Some wines are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. The truth is… in terms of winemaking is you often playing with the deck of cards dealt by Mother Nature. The key is to be smart enough to know when you’ve been dealt a great hand and take advantage of it...

That’s the concept of the ‘Maker’s Cut’. When our winemaker’s discover an extraordinary small parcel of goodness; when a vintage gives them gold, we let them loose.

Out of all the stars of the 2021 vintage, it was our fine Gewürztraminer block that shone the brightest. And with that, the Maker’s Cut 2021 Gewürztraminer was born. ⁠ ⁠

The concept is simple: small batch, superstar fruit and wine made extraordinarily well. ⁠

SORRY WE ARE SOLD OUT – NEW VINTAGE COMING SOON!

CREATING LEGENDS

Maker’s Cut is identified by our winemakers in the vineyard and worthy to stand alone. There are no limits to this wine, other than it is made exclusively in small quantities, making it rare, to be enjoyed by a lucky few. The inaugural release is the first time we have produced a spectacular Gewürztraminer from our Fareham Lane Vineyard as the fruit was simply too good to ignore.

5 Stars (95 Points)

"Complex and beautifully perfumed on the nose with lychee, orange peel, apricot and mixed spice aromas with a hint of savoury nuance. The concentrated palate delivers fleshy texture and opulent mouthfeel backed by bright acidity, finishing wonderfully long and flavoursome. At its best: now to 2026."

Winemaking

The Gewürztraminer from Fareham Lane was the first fruit picked for the 2021 season. 2.52T was hand harvested on the 1st of March 2021 – it was beautifully ripe as the fruit set was perfect & consistently even. The fruit was lightly pressed with only the free run juice being retained and fermented in our signature acacia puncheons for seven months (on its own yeast lees) before being gently racked and prepared for bottling on the 22nd of December 2021. Only 1362 bottles produced.
