Beautifully crafted, this Gewurztraminer balances body and fullness with delicate aromatics and the right acidity to hold it on it's feet. Blackenbrook's winemaker worked in Alsace years, so this tricky variety is no mystery and it shows. If you've been struggling to find a fully satisfying Gewurz for a decent price then search no more.

Overview

Gewurztraminer

Its Origins

Quality wines start in the vineyard. It was with that clear vision that Daniel and Ursula Schwarzenbach moved to the top of the South Island in 1998 and searched for land for almost two years, before purchasing their 20ha block in Tasman on the scenic Coastal Highway. The gentle north-facing slope, the Moutere clay soils and the mild maritime climate were immediately appealing. In the winter of 2000 they grafted their own vines to plant the first 4ha of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir in the following winter. Over the years they added Riesling, Gewürztraminer and the Italian red variety Montepulciano into the mix. Born in Switzerland but living in New Zealand since age 9, Daniel began his career as a medical chemist and microbiologist in NZ and the UK, before deciding that winemaking was the path he wanted to go down. He is committed to sustainable/organic winemaking, with very few additions/adjustments made to the wines themselves.

What The Critics Say

92/100 Bob Campbell

"Rich, ripe, opulent Gewurztraminer in an off/dry style. Luscious rose petal/lychee characters with hints of clove and other spices. A suggestion of sweetness is restrained by a hint of phenolic bitterness. Appealing wine that gives a nod in the direction of Alsace."

4.5 Stars Michael Cooper

"The powerful 2014 vintage is richly perfumed and mouthfilling (14.5 per cent alcohol), with a splash of sweetness (17 grams/litre of residual sugar) and strong, peachy, well-spiced, slightly gingery flavours. Fine value."
