Winemaker’s CommentsThis variety thrives in the Waipara climate and conditions, the cool climate allows the spicy fruit flavours to develop toperfection.The grapes came from two Waipara Vineyards, Maggie and Kym Rayner’s Home Block and The McKenzie WekaTerraces Vineyard.The last release of this wine was 2014.Gewurztraminer tends to be naturally low in acidity so balance is achieved by ripe sweet fruit characterscomplimenting the phenolics, glycerol and alcohol. The resultant wine shows rose petal, toffee apple and lychee onthe aroma. The palate has rich spicy fruit, made in a medium dry style with noticeable sweetness and finishes full, softand mouth filling. This wine can be enjoyed young, while fresh and fruity, but will reward cellaring, developing a richcomplex Turkish Delight bouquet, yet still have finesse on the palate. This wine has used the screw top closure topreserve fresh fruit flavours or allow the wine to age gracefully and reach its full potential with no bottle variation.This wine is great drinking while young [2-3 years old] but will be outstanding with extra time in bottle [5-7 years] andwas very limited in production.
