5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, light straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, paler on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented with good depth and tightly concentrated aromas of savoury rose-petals and Turkish Delight , along with steely, fresh herbs and exotic musky notes. Nuances of spice, floral perfumes and minerals unfold with aeration. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is very deeply concentrated with flavours of rose-petal florals and musk, entwined with fresh herbs, spices, an array of exotic florals nuances and mineral elements. The palate has a firm core with plenty of fruit extract and subtle phenolic textures alongside fresh, lacy acidity providing energy and liveliness. The flavours carry with freshness and vitality to an elegant, lingering finish of exotic florals, musk, honey and minerals. This is an elegantly concentrated and deep, medium-dry Gewurztraminer with rose-petal florals, fresh herbs, musk and spice on a firm, but vibrant palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4+ years. Clones GM12, 14, 457, 1106 and 1148 from the ‘Johnson’ vineyard, Waihopi, given several hours skin contact and fermented in oak and stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 12.5 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Estate-grown in the Waihopai Valley and fermented in tanks and old oak vessels, this wine is consistently impressive. The 2016 vintage is mouthfilling and gently sweet (12.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), with peachy, slightly spicy and gingery flavours, showing a touch of complexity, moderate acidity, and excellent depth and harmony. Drink now or cellar."
