Yvonne Lorkin recommends our Gewurztraminer 2019 in Canvas, NZ Herald's Lifestyle Magazine

Yvonne LorkingIn this week's Canvas well-loved wine commentator Yvonne Lorkin recommends our Blackenbrook Nelson Gewurztraminer 2019 to go with Annabel Langbein's recipe for Char-grilled Butterfly Tandoori-style Chicken - a truly mouth-watering combination!

Here's what Yvonne Lorkin says about the wine:

"This Gewurztraminer unleashes a lahar of luscious stonefruit succulence and tropical taste sensations on the nose and palate, alongside a sprinkling of ginger, white pepper and nashi niceness. Crisp, textural and deliciously dry on the finish.  It wraps itself around this tasty tandoori terrifically."

High praises for Blackenbrook Gewurztraminer 2017

Neil Hodgson reviews Blackenbrook Nelson Gewurztraminer in the Nelson MailFantastic to see Neil Hodgson's latest review in the Nelson Mail:

This Gewurztraminer is typical of the Blackenbrook style, beautiful winemaking that delivers clean flavours true to the varietal

In this case the lovely ripe fruit aromas tease the senses but the flavours deliver on the promise.  Lively spiced pear, lychee and soft ginger flavours abound in the rich but not over-powering palate, a medium to dry style wine that delivers excellent value. 

Joining a silver medal from the recent Bragato Wine Awards is a four star rating from me. 


Our Gewurztraminer impresses wine writer Neil Hodgson

We were thrilled to read Neil Hodgson's wine review in last night's Nelson Mail:

Blackenbrook Gewurztraminer 2016, 4 1/2 Stars
Oily and textural in the mouth, the wine is simply packed with flavour but isn’t too heavy, rather it is opulent without being cloying and has lovely acidity in the very long finish. Perfect with any dish that has a little spice.
