Description

  • Off-dry style
  • Tropical fruit
  • Turkish Delight
  • Ethereal texture

"Delicately aromatic Gewürztraminer with classic Turkish Delight, potpourri and rose-water flavours. Made in an off-dry style, the wine has lovely purity and an ethereal texture. Good value at this price" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review

"Exotic, immediately enticing and curious with aromas of tropical fruits and apples, white spices and flowers, white nectarine and pear, roses and suggestions of frangipani. On the palate - just dry with some initial sweetness captured in a silky and satin-cream texture - slowly gives way to fleshy white tree fruits and exotic tropical fruits, a warming alcohol and medium acidity bring contrast and complexity. Lengthy finish, great balance and length. Drink now and through 2024+. Serve cool" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

"Certified organic, the distinctive 2020 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Roys Hill Vineyard, hand-picked, tank-fermented and lees-aged for four months. Light lemon/green, it is richly perfumed and mouthfilling, with strong, ripe pear, lychee and spice flavours, and a long, off-dry (11 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish" Michael Cooper

Pale gold. This year our Gewürztraminer is very aromatic. Tropical fruit notes dominate the bouquet with lychee, passionfruit and pineapple, plus hints of rose. On the palate the wine has a lovely texture and mouthfeel, with luscious tropical fruit flavours. The wine will benefit from bottle age. The wine is a single vineyard wine, with fruit from our Roy's Hill Vineyard. 

2020 was a superb vintage and although 2019 was excellent, this vintage was even better and definitely the best vintage we’ve had at Stonecroft since we arrived in 2010. Flowering was good, and we were not affected by any frosts. Spring and early summer were warm and throughout the summer Hawke’s Bay experienced warm settled weather with hot, dry conditions. Although we had to deal with extra complications due to COVID-19 there was no rain around vintage which meant we had the luxury of picking when flavour ripeness was at its optimum.

Hand harvested on 18th March 2020. Crushed and de-stemmed with short period of skin contact, then fermented in stainless steel followed by 4 months lees ageing.

This is a variety which was planted at Stonecroft soon after the first vineyard was established in 1982. With this Gewürztraminer we are aiming for a medium dry wine which is lighter in style and food friendly. We did not make an Old Vine Gewurztraminer this year, so all the fruit went into this wine.
