The palate has lots of toasty oak, espresso, vanilla and caramel and is balanced with intense blackberry, black cherry and baked plum fruit that will integrate together nicely in the next two years. Savory charred meat and dried rosemary add complexity and the finish is long and given freshness by the crisp acidity.

The wine offers a distinctive combination of bright, nimble acidity and solid weightiness. There’s a characteristic sense of the vineyard in this wine with its stony complexity and bright fruit evoking the rocky subsoils and cool mesoclimate. The wine has great structure and a lush mouthfeel, which bodes well for its ability to cellar for at least a decade.

Twisted has different proportions of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay every year, but every year you can spot the influences of each variety in the wine. The 2011 Twisted shows its Riesling influence through wet stone, lemon and lime aromas and flavours. Its gewurztraminer influence shows through in ginger, spice and floral characters. The smallest portion of the wine, Chardonnay, is also evident with the peach and pear flavours that show on the palate, as well as the round mouthfeel of the wine. Combining these three varieties in our unconventional and twisted blend always gives us a wine of great complexity. As always, this Twisted is dangerously drinkable.
