Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This was an excellent summer enabling the grapes to be picked fully ripe and in perfect condition. The wine has intense varietal characters, with the aromas and flavours suggestive of quince, lychee, rose petal, Turkish musk and oriental spices. It is rich and unctuous on the palate yet retains a lively freshness. Lingering impressions of ginger draw out its length and complement its off dry finish."
4 Stars & 18.0/20 Raymond Chan, May 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, light golden-hued yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. This has a full, firmly concentrated nose with deeply packed aromas of ripe tropical fruits and root ginger, entwined with savoury exotic floral elements, and nutty notes, unfolding musky nuances. The nose has depth and density. Medium-dry to taste and fullish-bodied, the palate is powerfully presented with deep and generously packed flavours of root ginger, savoury tropical fruits, exotic florals and musk, unveiling honied and nutty suggestions. The palate is moutjhfilling and shows some alcoholic heat and power, providing depth and drive. The wine has soft acidity lending a degree of unctuousness, and the wine flows along a rounded phenolic core that carries to a strong, lingering finish. This is a powerfully packed off-dry Gewurztraminer with flavours of root-ginger, savoury fruits and exotic florals, with a honied, musky layer on a palate with some alcohol power. Match with spicy Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. North Canterbury fruit with 10% botrytis, given overnight skin contact and fermented in seasoned puncheons to 14.0% alc. and 12 g/L RS."
