Rippon Gewurtztraminer Riesling


Lake Wanaka, Central Otago

What is most interesting about this wine is just how different it is to most other NZ whites. You'd have to look in a European direction to find a similar wine methinks, which just makes this even more intriguing. A (just slightly) off dry Gewurtz, this has the overt, intensely floral and candied aromatics that great Gewurtz is known for, complete with the acidity and phenolics that this wine can show so well. A little slice of Alsatian goodness in Central Otago.

With maturing vines and the first really favourable year for Gewurz since 2003, this wine speaks with real accuracy and pride of its place. This, along with slow, whole bunch pressings, wild ferments and extended lees contact, has resulted in a wine which is defined by remarkable grace and clarity.
