Petane Station Bellbird Block Gewürztraminer 2020 $36
With just 70 dozen made of this lychee-laden little lovely from out Esk Valley way, by the time I finish writing this review it’ll possibly all be gone! My individually numbered bottle (the gorgeous no. 915) poured a perfectly pale gold wine, bursting with baking spices, mango, rosewater and citrus. The acidity is perky and adds zest to the mouthfeel which is edged with pear strudel characters and at 14.5% alcohol, there’s a pleasant prickle on the finish. Beautifully balanced and lightly-styled, it’s quite possibly the most delicious thing to sip with Szechuan prawns.
