5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Totally seductive and delicious; the gorgeous bouquet shows mango, rockmelon, rose petal and spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that is plush and velvety. The wine offers terrific fruit purity, richness and intensity, wonderfully enhanced by silky texture and refreshing acidity. Another classic offering from Johanneshof. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2022."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"This beauty is one of the country's greatest Gewürztraminers. Already delicious, the 2017 vintage was hand-picked in the lower Wairau Valley. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling and fleshy, with generous, peachy, gently spiced flavours, showing lovely depth and harmony, and an off-dry, well-rounded, lasting finish. A wine to ponder over, it's less overtly spicy, more complex and satisfying than many New Zealand Gewürztraminers. Drink now or cellar."

5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Raymond Chan, April 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Full, even yellow colour with light lemon-gold hues. The nose is taut and elegant in presentation with intense and penetrating fruit aromas of exotic florals and Turkish Delight melded with piquant floral and root-ginger notes, along with nuances of herbs, spices and musk. The nose is firmly concentrated. Medium in sweetness and medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of exotic florals, tropical fruit and Turkish Delight, root-ginger, cool florals and herbs, with nuances of spice and musk. The palate is subtly rich and has an unctuous suggestion, with soft acidity adding to the roundness. The palate is smooth-flowing with an underlying core and line, leading to a lingering finish of spices, ginger and herbs. This is an intense and tightly-bound medium Gewurztraminer with flavours of exotic florals, root-ginger, herbs, spices and musk on a smooth palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4 years. Fruit from the Lower Wairau Valley, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 15 g/L RS."

92/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Sweet, floral perfume, musk sticks and rose petals, candied mixed peel, faint green herbs. Attractive, overt, definitively the variety. Sweet flavours, citrus, ripe apples, light golden syrup, fresh feeling despite the richness and holds just shy of medium weight. Well balanced, fragrant, quite delicious all up. Nice."

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, January 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"The latest release of this high-flying gewürztraminer sports a screwcap for the first time after previously relying on a Diam closure. Concentrated and quite complex gewürztraminer, with an appealing hint of musk, possibly from botrytis, on top of Turkish Delight and lychee flavours. A medium-dry and quite textural wine."
