5 Stars Yvonne Lorkin,

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 anything tandoori terrifically.

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.

Certified vegan

To make this wine, we haven't used classic fining agents such as fish, milk, or egg extracts and only minimal additives.

This means our Gewürztraminer is very natural and vegan friendly. In fact, it is certified by the New Zealand Vegetarian Society.

The season

The weather gods were on our side, giving us an exceptional growing season.

With ample spring rain the vineyard was off to a strong start and quickly grew a vibrant green canopy, the powerhouse producing the energy for the new crop.

Grapevines are wind-pollinators and the dry and sunny December was perfect for a good, even fruit set.

From January right into harvest a heat wave and drought gripped Nelson Tasman. Luckily our un-irrigated vines have deep roots and managed to find sufficient water deep down in the gravelly clay soils. They thrived in the challenging conditions and gave us a beautiful crop with outstanding colour and flavours. Harvest kicked off on 8 March, the earliest we’ve seen it at Blackenbrook’s ever.
