Bursting with rose-petal, Turkish delight and spice flavours, our Blackenbrook Gewürztraminer 2013 is a highly aromatic wine with a deliciously soft texture and a lingering off-dry finish.

Ideal serving temperature: 15°C


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper
A consistently delicious wine. The 2013 vintage is an Alsace-style wine, ripely perfumed, with substantial body and excellent delicacy and richness. It's still very youthful, with pear, lychee, peach and spice flavours, gentle sweetness, a slightly oily texture and obvious potential; open 2015+.

4 Stars or 85/100 Bob Campbell MW
Pretty, delicate Gewurztraminer with classically varietal rose petal, orange blossom, potpourri and subtle lychee flavours. The wine has an appealing and ethereal texture. Great with lightly spiced Thai curries.

Notes of honeysuckle and musky spice waft up from this highly perfumed, powerful white, and are joined by rosewater and a fresh twist of quinine on its dry and oily textured palate.
