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. This wine is produced from the original block which was planted in 1979 and are some of the oldest vines in Marlborough. They are very low-cropping but this is worth it for the amazing complexity and concentration they get from the fruit.
Intensely perfumed, with notes of ripe oranges, cloves, lychee and rose petals. These lead into luscious varietal flavours of baked quince and lychee, with underlying characters of ginger, orange oil and exotic spice.
$30.00 in any mixed six $27.00 by the straight dozen.
