Hand harvested from the Church Road vineyard in Waipara, bursting with the distinctive aromas of lychees, rose petal and subtle spices. These flavours flow through into the palate in a wonderful blend with an off-dry finish. Balanced and well made, this Gewurztraminer is great with many spicy and flavourful foods.

4 / 5

Michael Cooper

Still youthful, the 2016 vintage of this North Canterbury wine is finely textured and perfumed. Weighty, with ripe, citrusy, spicy flavours, showing a touch of complexity, and excellent depth, it should be at its best 2020+.

Youthfully charming and beautifully lifted, the bouquet shows mango, pineapple, rose petal and spice aromas, leading to a juicy palate that is plump and fleshy. The wine offers attractive varietal flavours together with silky mouthfeel and refreshing acidity, finishing velvety and lingering. Style: Off-dry.
