Falconhead Hawke's Bay Gewürztraminer (2019)

Offering fine value, the 2019 vintage (4*) was mostly handled in tanks (5 per cent of the blend was barrel-fermented). Bright, light gold, with a fragrant, spicy bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with good depth of spicy, peachy, slightly gingery flavours, slightly sweet (7.6 grams/litre of residual sugar), very harmonious and smooth. Retasted in mid-late 2021, it's building up well with age and probably at its peak.
