Viticulture This wine is made from selected Hawke’s Bay vineyards. These vineyards were cropped at a very low 5 tonnes per hectare. After a perfect summer there was excellent flavour development in the Gewürztraminer. Careful canopy management using shoot thinning, leaf plucking and fruit thinning were employed to help ensure these grapes were fully mature. The fruit was harvested between the 13th and 21st of March at brix ranging between 22 and 24.
Tasting Notes The nose is spicy and floral with the typical Gewürztraminer rose petal bouquet. The palate is juicy, and with its good weight, is soft and long. This wine has perfect balance with the flavours lingering well on to the smooth finish.
Cellar Potential The wine will cellar well up to 5 years with the spice and tropical flavours becoming more intense.
