Our Gewürztraminer 2017 seduces with its nose of rose petals, Turkish delight and star anise. The palate is rich and powerful with an assertive structure and a lingering off-dry finish.

Ideal serving temperature: 15°C

Silver Medal Bragato Wine Awards 2017


4 Stars Michael Cooper

A consistently attractive wine. Pale and ripely perfumed, this Gewurztraminer is a medium-dry style with mouth-filling body and a vibrant array of pear, peach, lychee and spice flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth.

 

4 Stars Neil Hodgson

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.

Weather Conditions: Regular rain fall in spring and early summer promoted a vibrant and lush canopy.

A warm and dry February made for excellent ripening conditions but just a few days before harvest it was back to rain.

Fortunately we got a few more sunny days and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring the crop in safely just hours before cyclone Debbie hit the region – once again extremely lucky!
