Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Te Whare Ra has a long standing reputation for producing one of New Zealand’s finest Gewürztraminers and much of the credit must go to the vineyard. This wine is produced from the original block which was planted in 1979 and are some of the oldest vines in Marlborough. They are very low-cropping but this is worth it for the amazing complexity and concentration we get from the fruit. The TWR Gewürztraminer is Certified Organic.

Intensely perfumed, with notes of lychees, ripe oranges and cloves. These lead into luscious varietal flavours of lychee and quince, with underlying characters of ginger and exotic spice. The palate shows intense fruit concentration and weight with a fine, soft texture and excellent persistence of flavour. This wine is of a medium-dry sweetness. 16 g/L rs."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2016 Vintage)
"Intense, moderately sweet gewürztraminer with concentrated Turkish delight, rose petal, liquorice and anise flavours. This discretely luscious wine has seductive purity, an ethereal texture and an incredibly lengthy finish. Very impressive."
5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2016 Vintage)
"Absolutely stunning. Perfumed aromas of ripe stone fruit, mango, lychee and tropical flowers lead to a richly fruited and generously expressed palate that is concentrated and velvety, while remaining elegant and refined. This meltingly delicious wine offers varietal purity and intensity, and finishes with sustained fruit richness. Off-dry. Hand picked from their home vineyard in Renwick. At its best: now to 2026. Certified organic."
5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2016 Vintage)​
"Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, with slight green hues. The nose is refined with intensely packed and voluminous aromas of rose-petal florals with harmoniously melded notes of musk and Turkish Delight confectionary building to show a deep, concentrated and rounded core with freshness and poised detail. The aromatics combine remarkable presence with delicacy. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the mouthfeel is beautifully smooth, soft-textured and seamless in flow with a gently building heart of rich and opulent flavours of rose-petal florals and musk, unfolding citrus notes with Turkish Delight. The palate has great presence and the flavour fill the mouth. The acidity is soft and integrated, lending very rounded textures. The wine carries with underlying, gentle drive and power, to a long, lingering finish. This is a beautifully rich, soft and seamless medium-dry Gewurztraminer with remarkable rose-petal and musk fruit presence and a soft, seamless mouthfeel. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked and sorted fruit, from the ‘Home’ block, from vines planted in 1979, given good skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.9% alc. and 16 g/L RS, TA 4.5 g/L and pH 3.57, the wine aged on lees. Certified BioGro organic. 396 cases made."
91/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (2016 Vintage)
"​It’s a heady display of lollied rosewater, stonefruit and spice, the pack of flavour jammed right up to the brim. This white wine makes itself known. Guwurztraminer is commonly a full-on experience but what helps set this apart is the real fruit intensity of the palate and (moreso) the finish, where instead of losing its shape it rather pulls tight and introduces some discipline. It’s a very good example of the variety."
