A soft and charming Gewurtzraminer. If I were to try this blind, I would have guessed that this wine came from Alsace. With classic aromas and flavours associated with the grape variety, this wine is finely balanced. tt has some spice and finishes nice. An off-dry, good-value example of what New Zealand has to offer.

There is a lot to like about this wine. It is very aromatic with typical lychee, pineapple, orange blossom and rose water aromas. It's quite full bodied for a white wine, well balanced with a decent finish. Unfortunately for me, the rose water flavours overwhelm the palate and finish leaving me with the impression I've just eaten a bar of pink soap. Its a well made wine but must love rose.
