Yvonne Lorkin, Canvas - New Zealand Herald 26 Oct 2019
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. 


92 / 100 Cameron Douglas, MS
Exotic, varietal, fruity and pure in expression. Aromas of white peach and red apple, roses and a melange of fruit perfumes and sweet spices. Luscious, fresh, spicy and varietal on the palate with precise and engaging fruit flavours, citrus juice and flowers. A soft silky texture with contrasting acidity and lengthy dry finish. A lovely example from a great vintage, balanced and well made.

Weather Conditions: Good rainfall in spring promoted healthy canopy growth. December brought fine and dry weather, ideal conditions for a successful flowering and pollination.

From January right into harvest a heat wave and drought gripped the region. Our deep-rooting vines and the moisture-holding clay soils enabled our un-irrigated vineyard to thrive in these challenging conditions and produce a healthy crop with outstanding flavour concentration.

Harvest kicked off on 8 March, the earliest starting date at Blackenbrook’s ever.

Viticulture
• 100% fruit from our Home block
• Moutere clay soil with a layer of sandy loam
• Manual shoot thinning, leaf plucking and crop reduction
• Hand-harvested and hand-sorted on 18 March 2019 with 23 Brix

 

Winemaking

  • Extremely gentle winemaking:
    Whole bunch pressed, gravity-fed from
    press area to main winery, tank fermented
    at low temperature to enhance aromatics
    and fruit-flavours,
    extended lees contact,
    minimal pumping, no fining pre-bottling
  • Oak-ageing for 9% of the wine to add complexity
  • 6g/ltr natural residual sugar
  • Bottled on 17 July 2019 under screw caps
  • 14.0% Alcohol
