Gemstone celebrates simplicity as something that is pure and uncomplicated. That is not to say that we think simplicity is easy, rather that it should be a great idea uncluttered by the need for explanation. The Gemstone range by Gemtree Wines delivers honest flavours at an affordable price. This range provides customers with an introduction to Gemtree's philosophy and commitment to organic wine growing.
The 2014 to 2015 growing season presented us with a hot and dry spring, resulting in early onset of flowering. January brought warm but not extreme temperatures. A series of heat waves in February brought the vintage on very quickly. Good water management ensured that the vines had adequate reserves leading up to the harvest. Vintage commenced early and was over in a flash, but the resulting wines show wonderful natural acidity and flavour intensity.
The Gemstone wines all have purity and brightness, which is a reflection of the vineyards. A simple winemaking approach was taken with the Shiraz.
