The Gewürztraminer shows classic lychee and ginger characters on the nose. The palate is dry to taste and very focused. We avoid the typical oily varietal characters thanks to the alluvial soils of this vineyard. This wine reward cellaring for the next 10 years.

WineNZ Magazine, October 2019, Recommended, “Nice, clean, lemon, icing sugar dusted, quite tousled brioche nose, ditto palette. Abit hot.” Floral but slightly herbal. Boronia notes. Good palette, dry, fresh, some phenolics. Smokers’ lollies. Spicy pear. Candy floss palette, broad with some warmth.”
