4 Stars - Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide 2020 January 2021


93 Points - Cameron Douglas MS October 2020 Striking bouquet
"Fragrant, intensely fruited, spicy and varietal. Flavours of exotic fruits steeped in flowers and spices. Apples and fresh lychees, lemon candy and roses. Silky texture with medium acidity, a core of fruit, loaded with spices and a lengthy finish. Well-made and ready to pair with all white fleshed foods and vegan dishes. best from today and through 2024."

Very pale straw in colour while the aromas offer the classic, lifted potpourri florals with lychee and roses with a pronounced thread of fresh lemon. The palate is soft, round and luscious but with wonderful weight and depth. Turkish delight flavours add to the wine’s complexity and give way to ripe tropical fruits on the mid-palate while the finish has a pithy lemon character. Long, concentrated and highly memorable. Vineyards and viticulture Our Winery Block and the Woodward Vineyard located just a few hundred metres down the road. Two and three-cane, VSP pruned vines. On heavy clay soils which retain moisture and allow us to grow these vines without irrigation. These clays give weight and mouthfeel to the wine. 
 
Try with exotic, well-flavoured and spicy foods such as Moroccan dishes with dried fruits or Asian-inspired foods. It works well with these flavours: fresh ginger, clove, cinnamon, allspice, turmeric, madras curry, sichuan pepper, soy sauce, sesame, almond, rose water

Lawson's Dry Hills (Marlborough) 2020 Pioneer Gewurztraminer

94 Points Cameron Douglas MS (2019 vintage)
"Seductive and complex bouquet with fragrant spices, forest flowers, sweet scented white fleshed fruits, caramelised citrus, apple then honeysuckle. Weighty, fleshy, silky and delicious on the palate. Finesse and charm, mouthfeel a fresh. Well-made and ready from today and through 2025+." (October 2020)

From Lawsons Dry Hills, Marlborough icon. From thirty five year old vines with trunks as thick as thighs, this unique wine embraces everything that is so good about Gewürztraminer. Hugely aromatic with a pronounced and pungent perfume, the ensuing palate is rich, weighty and oily with intense, lingering flavours of exotic fruits and spices. Haunting, unwavering and highly desirable.

This Gewurztraminer is from the company’s original vineyard, planted in 1982, that surrounds the winery. These unirrigated vines are deeply rooted in clay soils which help to give the wine intensity, weight and body, resulting in a rich, mouth-coating texture.

This stunning example of Gewurztraminer shows its true colours at a young age but will also reward time in the bottle. Enjoy over the next five years and probably longer.

Main Divide (Waipara) 2019 Gewurztraminer

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

91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2020 (2019 Vintage)

Winery description

"A classic North Canterbury summer then enabled this smaller crop to mature beautifully. Accelerated ripening allowed harvest to take place slightly earlier than usual, and favourable autumn weather ensured the grapes were picked in perfect condition.

The wine is lemon-straw in colour, with intense varietal aromas of lychee, quince, ginger, honeysuckle and spice. The palate is rich and unctuous, yet there remains a lively freshness and vibrancy. Pre-ferment skin contact has added structure and ripe phenolics, giving the wine satisfying length and balancing its off dry finish."

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."
