From the Smail family's home block vineyard on the Moutere clay soils over looking the Kina Peninsula in the Nelson region. The wines are made by son Sam Smail who is a dab hand with the fickle Gewurztraminer variety (he's had plenty of experience and success with it in his day job as winemaker at Marlborough's Whitehaven). The 2017 Sea Level is everything a Gewurztraminer fan could hope for with gorgeous perfume, flavour, weight and concentration.
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"This is classically expressed on the nose showing perfumed aromas of mango, lychee, Turkish Delight and rich florals, leading to a supple palate that is beautifully fruited and rounded. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and power, offering fabulous drinking. At its best: now to 2022."
