Hunter's Marlborough Gewürztraminer (2021)

Estate-grown at Rapaura, on the north side of the Wairau Valley, the 2021 vintage (4.5*) is a perfumed, full-bodied, Alsace-style wine. Light lemon/green, it is strongly varietal, with youthful, ripe peach, lychee and spice flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth, and a finely textured, dryish (6 grams/litre of residual sugar), lingering finish. Best drinking 2023+.
