Aromatico is a blend of Adelaide Hills Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Sauvignon
Blanc. The name is taken from one of the many synonyms for the Gewürztraminer
grape believed to originate in the Alto Adige area of Northern Italy near the
town of Tramin, where it is known
as Traminer Aromatico.
Stephen had long wanted to make a Gewürztraminer-based wine because of its
unrivalled aromatic qualities. It is, however, a low-acid variety requiring the
support of Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc to create a balanced and flavoursome
wine with natural acidity.
