Stonecroft Old Vine Gewürztraminer (2021)

The Gewürztraminers from this tiny Hawke's Bay winery are among the best in the country. This 'Old Vine' wine is made entirely from grapes hand-picked from the original Mere Road plantings of 1983, and matured on its yeast lees for four months, with no use of oak. Certified organic, the very classy 2021 vintage (5*) is already delicious. Pale lemon in hue, it is richly perfumed, sturdy and well-rounded, in a powerful, off-dry style with concentrated, ripe peach, lychee and spice flavours, a slightly oily texture, and lovely delicacy and length.
