Te Whare Ra (Marlborough) 2019 Gewurztraminer

93/100 - Cameron Douglas MS, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)

Winery notes
"Te Whare Ra has a long standing reputation for producing one of New Zealand’s finest Gewürztraminers and much of the credit must go to the vineyard here. This wine is produced solely from 14 rows in the old block which were planted in 1979 and are some of the oldest vines in Marlborough at 38 years of age. Part of the reason for our conversion to organic and biodynamic farming was to rescue these old vines and coax them back to life. We saw huge potential in this old block and successfully rejuvenating them has been one of our greatest achievements. They are very low-cropping, which is not great for the accountant’s numbers, but this is worth it for the amazing complexity and concentration we get from the fruit and the exceptional quality of the resultant wines.

Intensely perfumed, with notes of lychees, ripe oranges and cloves. These lead into luscious varietal flavours of lychee and quince, with underlying characters of ginger and exotic spice. The palate shows intense fruit concentration and weight with a fine, soft texture and excellent persistence of flavour. This wine is off dry and continues the outstanding quality of previous vintages of our Te Whare Ra Gewürztraminer."

Te Whare Ra (Marlborough) 2019 Sauvignon Blanc

5 Stars & 94/100 - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS
"Pungent, varietal, fruity, savoury and exotic with aromas of fresh and dried herbs, sweet green papaya, grapefruit, apple and wet river stone minerality. On the palate – equally exotic, fruity and pungent. Dry with abundant acidity contrasted by a core of fruit that mirrors the nose. Fleshy satin textures, herbs and peppery white spice. Balanced, focused, lengthy and delicious. Drink now and through 2024+."

winery note
"Our 2019 release shows lovely ripe Awatere characters of guava, white currant, and elderflower coupled with the Wairau hallmarks of passionfruit & tropical notes and hints of basil and lime. These follow through to the palate – which is fine and soft with loads of fleshy fruit balanced by a ripe, juicy acidity and lingering minerality. There is real fruit weight here and that is complimented by lovely texture from the time on lees and the barrel parcels – It is utterly delicious!"
