Shangri-La Art Series

Nelson's intense colours and vibrancy have inspired our Shangri-La art series, with Michelle Bellamy's painting "Centre of New Zealand" adorning the Gewurztraminer label. 
 "Centre of New Zealand" by Michelle Bellamy, Nelson

Michelle Bellamy is a contemporary landscape artist.  The purity and brightness of her palette capture the clarity of New Zealand’s light with stunning colour and detail.  Through precision brushwork and careful layering, acrylic paint serves to render extraordinary the iconic and much loved beauty of the Nelson region.

 

Tasting Notes

Beautifully perfumed the Shangri-La Gewurztraminer 2020 is intensely varietal, with elegant rose water and spice flavours.

It’s our Moutere clay soils, the dazzling Nelson sun and the finger prints of our fabulous team that make our wines unique. We hope you’ll enjoy!

 

Season Overview

What a blast! The past growing season was a pure delight, putting smiles on everyone’s face!

The vines loved the gentle spring rain and quickly produced a healthy, vibrantly green canopy. In December, our Nelson sun made for perfect flowering and good pollination.

Summer brought many weeks of blue skies, interspersed with brief rain falls, just enough to keep the soil moisture up and the vines thriving.

We couldn’t believe our luck when we saw this weather pattern continue right into harvest in mid-March! The fruit was in perfect condition with high sugar levels and tremendous flavour intensity, probably the best we’ve ever seen it!

As Covid-19 started to cast long shadows over the country, we managed to complete harvest 2020 just hours before the start of lockdown!
