Stonecroft Old Vine Gewurztraminer

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
The Gewurztraminers from this tiny Hawke's Bay winery are striking and among the finest in the country. This 'Old Vine' wine, introduced from the 2004 vintage, is made entirely from grapes hand-picked from the original Mere Road plantings in 1983. The 2009, handled entirely in tanks, makes a powerful statement. An authoritative wine with a voluminous, spicy, gingery, slightly honeyed fragrance, it is weighty and complex, with superbly rich, peachy and spicy flavours, fresh and lasting. The 2010 vintage is viewed as a slightly 'lighter' style, so priced lower than the usual $45. Still very youthful, it is full-bodied and gently sweet (10 grams/litre of residual sugar), with concentrated, ripe stone-fruit and spice flavours, finely balanced, rounded and rich.
