• Natural Wine Co Organic Gewurztraminer Gisborne 2016

    The Natural Wine Co Gewurztraminer is produced from the oldest Gewurztraminer vines in New Zealand, over 30 years old. Produced from our Valley Vineyard in the Ormond Valley Appellation. These grapes are harvested very ripe, as low yields and 2 cane pruning encourages this. The grapes are normally harvested around 24 brix, very ripe and very clean grapes. This wine has lovely fruit flavour and texture.

    The wines are made from certified organic grapes and bio-dynamically grown grapes. The wine is low allergen – low sulphur, minimal additive.

    Good for the environment – The conservation message. In releasing this wine brand, we sponsor The Womens Native Tree Trust. This group plants native trees in community’s and schools. They grow their plants from seeds and then donate the trees.

    1. 4 out of 5

      :

      Bright, light straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of blush, pale on rim. The nose is soft, light and gentle as it builds in depth, showing root ginger melded with exotic florals, tropical fruits, musk and Turkish Delight. Dryish to taste, light-medium bodied and elegantly proportioned, finely expressed fruit flavours of yellow stonefruits, tropical fruit and exotic florals are entwined with root ginger.

      Honey and Turkish Delight elements unfold to add detail. This has good weight and presence, and a degree of unctuousness is present. Grainy phenolics emerge and grow in texture as the wine flows, carrying to a firm, linear finish with classical varietal bitter elements. This is an elegant, dryish Gewurztraminer with ginger and honied flavours and some phenolic grip on the finish.

      Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the company’s ‘Ormond Valley Road’ vineyard, vines over 30 y.o., fermented in stainless steel to 12.5% alc. and 7 g/L RS, the wine given extended skin contact. Certified AsureQuality organic. 17.0/20 May 2015
