2014 Huia Gewürztraminer
The 2014 Huia Gewürztraminer is Estate Grown on Huia’s Winsome Estate vineyard, on the seaward side of the Wairau Valley. The vineyard soils are a mixture of orthic clay and black sand creating a low vigour vineyard.
Harvest commenced on the 27th March, when the grapes were ripe and in superb condition. The grapes were picked at an average of 23.9 Brix achieving real ripeness with rich turkish delight aromas and tropical fruits on the nose. Once settled, half the juice was fermented in neutral French oak puncheons, with some light lees stirring to provide a softer textured element to the wine. This wine was aged on light lees in neutral French oak for 10 months before being prepared for bottling.
The nose has fragrant rose petal notes and candied fruit. Generous lychee and rose water flavours fill out the aromatic palate. This is a rich, succulent style of Gewürztraminer showing complex layers of flavours and a long lasting finish. This wine is certified organic and is vegetarian & vegan friendly.
