Since then the Gewürztraminer from this vineyard has legendary in New Zealand wine circles, made in a medium style this wine has a rich, round mouth feel with great depth and concentration whilst displaying wonderful aromatics
Vibrant and rich now, however it will reward cellaring for six to eight years.

Awards & Reviews
Michael Cooper - Five stars
The delicious 2015 vintage is a weighty (14.4% alcohol) fleshy, Alsace-style wine, estate grown on the Home Block vineyard and barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and complex with concentrated, ripe, peachy, spicy flavours, a gentle splash of sweetness (18.6 grams/litre of residual sugar) and a lovely depth and harmony. Drink now or cellar.
