I lie this wine. Superb fruit, good acid, surprising balance, dig this wine. Pleasing.

Nose like a serious Alsace GC gewurz had me excited. The palate is off-dry but the fruit and flower intensity gives it a sensation of being even sweeter(which I'm not sure if I like). Long finish. Killer example of the grape from NZ, but that price...

Solid Geurtz, lovely rosewater, lychee and mango. Fairly plush but balanced sugar

2004 Off the charts. Honeyed spice and fruit. Still plenty of acid to clean up the finish and fruit just keeps giving. Delicious!

Best Gewürztraminer I have had. Sweet honey suckle and spicy aroma. Deep beautiful wine balancing the flavour with the slight sweetness expected of a Gewürztraminer. Absolute delight - now to start the hunt for other vintages!
