Matawhero Reserve Gewurztraminer

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
An acclaimed Gisborne wine in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when it was arrestingly perfumed and concentrated, since then its style has been slightly less pungent, with a soft finish. The use of indigenous yeasts and malolactic fermentation has toned down the varietal character, but the wine is impressively weighty and flavoursome. The golden 1999 vintage, now on sale, is full-bodied, with strong, gingery, slightly honeyed and toasty flavours. I'd prefer greater delicacy and freshness, but it's a characterful dry wine, now ready.

Michael Cooper (1995 Vintage) says
An acclaimed Gisborne wine in the early 1980s, when it was arrestingly perfumed and concentrated, since then its style has been slightly less pungent, with a soft finish. The use of indigenous yeasts and malolacric fermentation has toned down the varietal character, but the wine is impressively weighty, dry and rounded. The light yellow 1994 vintage is a distinctive wine with a musky bouquet and good depth of peachy, peppery flavours in a mouthfilling, smooth style, maturing well. The 1995 has a rich, spicy, gingery perfume. It's a weighty, peppery, soft wine with good concentration, aging well.
