Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"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.
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. Medium Dry."
Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"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."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Certified organic, the distinctive 2020 vintage 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. (Note: the Old Vine Gewürztraminer was not made in 2020). Drink now or cellar."
93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2020 Vintage)
"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."
