Description

"It is nicely lifted on the nose displaying tropical fruit, mixed spice, lychee and subtle savoury complexity. The palate delivers lovely rounded mouthfeel and weight, together with silky texture and gentle acidity. It is fleshy, succulent and lingering. At its best: now to 2018. Certified organic." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2016.

This is about as natural as it gets for gewurztraminer production. Nicola and Geoff Wright are organic pioneers in Gisborne and alongside not adding any herbicides, insecticides or fungicides, they're also not adding any yeast, opting instead for wild, 'natural' yeasts to conduct the ferment. This results in a funkier, dryer style, laced with lychee and classic spices, yet it's not as blousy and in-your-face as many other examples out there at this price. Subtle and balanced and slightly smoky. Produced from some of the oldest Gewurztraminer plantings in New Zealand from over 35 year old vines, from the Ormond Valley Appellation, Gisborne.
