What is Schönburger? It is an extremely rare German grape, similar in flavour to the better known Gewurztraminer grape. How rare? There is less than 120 hectares (as far as we can ascertain) in the whole and we are only 1 of 3 producers in Australia, with 0.4 hectares planted.
This wine has a complex nose of fresh melon, rose petal, lychee and honeysuckle. The palate reveals with melon, guava, white stone fruit and brown pear flavours and a clean finish. Production is extremely limited.
