2020 Johanneshof Marlborough Gewurztraminer

95 Points Bob Campbell MW
In stock
Always scooping awards, this is an icon kiwi Gewurztraminer from the experts at Johanneshof. With a balanced (though rich) sweetness and an satisfyingly unctuous mouthfeel, this is a Gewurz-lover's delight and a classic match with those spicy foods and salty-savoury cheeses. Otherwise you could just drink it all by itself -- it's a treat.

Its Origins

Johanneshof Cellars is a boutique, artisan winery producing wines from hand harvested grapes only sourced from their vineyards and growers in Marlborough. It is jointly owned and operated by Edel Everling, a fifth generation winemaker from Germany and Warwick Foley from Marlborough. Both winemakers trained in the world-famous wine area of Rheingau, Germany, where Edel studied for her degree in viticulture and oenology at Geisenheim University while Warwick was a guest student there. They continued to work for renowned wineries in Germany and New Zealand before setting up Johanneshof Cellars in 1991.

What The Critics Say

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Moderately sweet gewürztraminer with concentrated Turkish Delight, white rose, lychee and potpourri characters. Creamy-textured wine with just a hint of peppery tannins. An intensely varietal wine. 12 MAR 2021." Drink 2021 - 2026

95/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2017 vintage)

"Totally seductive and delicious; the gorgeous bouquet shows mango, rockmelon, rose petal and spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that is plush and velvety. The wine offers terrific fruit purity, richness and intensity, wonderfully enhanced by silky texture and refreshing acidity. Another classic offering from Johanneshof. Style: Off-dry. $30.00. www.johanneshof.co.nz. May 2018."
