Blackenbrook are a small, family-run winery in the Nelson region. They take a 'quality over quantity' approach to winemaking and, as well as being an accredited sustainable winegrowing producer, most of their wines are also unfined and vegan.
This is a superb example of Gewurz. It's off-dry with characteristic flavours of rose petal and spice. Mouthfilling and lingering, this is an excellent partner for your next curry.
Sam Kim writes "Gorgeously fruited and fabulously perfumed, the bouquet shows mango, pineapple, lychee and Turkish Delight characters. It is equally impressive and delicious on the palate, delivering excellent concentration and depth backed by refreshing acidity, finishing lingering and comforting."
Michael Cooper writes "A consistently attractive wine. Light lemon/green, this Gewurztraminer is gently perfumed and mouthfilling, with peach, pear, lychee and ginger flavours, showing excellent delicacy and freshness and a distinctly spicy, off-dry finish."
