Stonecroft Old Vine Gewürztraminer


The Gewürztraminers from this tiny Hawke’s Bay winery are among the finest in the country. This ‘Old Vine’ wine is made entirely from grapes hand-picked from the original Mere Road plantings of 1983. Certified organic, the 2019 vintage (5*) is rare – only 30 cases were produced. Straw-hued, with a hint of gold, it has an enveloping, highly perfumed, spicy bouquet. A powerful wine (15 per cent alcohol), it is youthful, with highly concentrated, peachy, spicy flavours, a hint of apricot, and a slightly sweet (9 grams/litre of residual sugar), lasting finish. Best drinking 2022+.
