Brookfields Hawke's Bay Gewurztraminer

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Powerful, richly flavoured Gewurztraminers are rare in New Zealand, which makes Brookfields' all the more welcome. Grown in stony soils in Ohiti Road, inland from Fernhill, it's a weighty wine with deep, lingering flavours. The 2002 vintage was picked at 24 brix and made in a fractionally off-dry style. Minerally rather than spicy on the nose, it's a substantial (14 per cent alcohol) wine with very good depth of peach, pear and slightly earthy flavours and an oily, spicy finish.

Powerful, richly flavoured Gewurztraminers are rare in New Zealand, which makes Brookfields' all the more welcome. Grown in stony soils in Ohiti Road, inland from Fernhill, it is an impressively weighty wine with deep, lingering flavours. The 2001 vintage was hand-harvested at 24 brix, whole-bunch pressed and fermented to near dryness (five grams per litre of residual sugar). Light yellow, with a spicy, gingery bouquet, it's a weighty wine (14 per cent alcohol) with deep flavour, a slightly oily texture and rich varietal character.

Powerful, richly flavoured Gew|rztraminers are rare in New Zealand, which makes Brookfields' all the more welcome. Grown in stony soils in Ohiti Road, inland from Fernhill, it is an impressively weighty wine with deep, lingering flavours. The softly mouthfilling J 998 vintage, labelled Noble Gewurztraminer, was made from "extremely sweet" fruit with a mild Botrytis infection and stop-fermented at 20 grams per litre of residual sugar. It's a ripe, late harvest style with rich, lychees-like flavours in a distinctly Alsace-like style.
