Ataahua (Waipara) 2016 Gewurztraminer

Four Stars - Winestate Magazine
Four Stars - Michael Cooper
The 2013 vintage is a dry style (3.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), estate-grown and fermented in tanks (30 per cent) and seasoned oak barrels (70 per cent). Full of personality, it has mouthfilling body and good concentration of vibrant peach, ginger and spice flavours, showing some complexity. Already enjoyable, it's well worth cellaring." Michael Cooper
91/100 - The gorgeous bouquet is filled with tropical fruit, spice, floral and Turkish Delight aromas. It’s silky and rounded on the palate with lovely fruit intensity, nicely supported by integrated acidity. Varietaly expressive and flavoursome. At its best; now to 2016. (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit) 
A richly perfumed and weighty wine bursting with the distinctive aromas of lychees, sweet perfume and subtle spices.  The palate is slightly oily in texture with a concentrated gingery spiced flavour.

Lawson's Dry Hills (Marlborough) 2017 Gewurztraminer

If you are looking for good Gewurztraminer then Lawsons' would be a good place to start.

Pioneers of both the region and the variety. Apparently Kiwis cant get enough of this spicy wine!

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.

Main Divide (Waipara) 2019 Gewurztraminer

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

90/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 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."
