Pegasus Bay Gewürztraminer (2019)

Estate-grown at Waipara, in North Canterbury, the 2019 vintage (5*) was fermented and matured for six months in old oak puncheons. Light lemon/green, it is a ripely perfumed, softly mouthfilling wine, with deep lychee, pear and spice flavours, gentle sweetness (11 grams/litre of residual sugar), good complexity, and a slightly oily texture. A very harmonious wine, it's already delicious.
