The Penfolds Cellar Reserve Traminer is sourced from Penfolds high altitude Woodbury vineyard in the Eden Valley. Planted in the early 1970's, the vines are hand pruned to achieve low cropping canopies that yield grapes with intense fruit flavour. Partial fermentation in seasoned French oak barriques adds complexity to the highly perfumed nose - bath salts and jasmine florals bound from the glass. Varietal Turkish delight, lychee and musk stick characters prevail with just a dash of spice to complete this intensely aromatic offering. Mouth-watering crisp, mineral acid with a lovely textural element to finish. A wine with wonderful balance between sweetness and acidity.
