Waitaki Valley Gewürztraminer - 2017
This is the first Gewürz we have released, and it is rather special
At bottling the wine is a wonderful straw yellow. Beautiful, restrained floral aromatics but also a cooler edge of spice, root ginger, clove and cinnamon. In the mouth it also shows that lovely bitter-sweetness, rich lychee-like fruit, soft acidity and that veil of fine phenolics common in great Gewürztraminer. A hell of a mouthful to pronounce and a hell of a mouthful of flavour, we expect this gorgeously aromatic wine to mature gracefully for a decade or more.
