2021 Johanneshof Marlborough Gewurztraminer

93 Points Richard Caro
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, it's such a treat you could just drink it all by itself!
$35.99 in mixed 6+ or $39.99 per bottle



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

Winemaker notes on current 2021 vintage

"Newly released in August 2021 our Johanneshof Gewurztraminer 2021 is following its previous vintages with its golden colour, stunning aromatic bouquet of flowers and subtle exotic spice with a hint of sandalwood. Richly floral aromas greet your senses on the first sip with gentle kisses of rosewater, ginger and honeysuckle. Beautifully textured and well rounded with a touch of sweetness this wine is powerful and elegant, with an lengthy finish. Its the perfect accompaniment to Asian cuisine, hearty dishes or your favourite cheese board."

95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2020 vintage)

"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."

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."
