Allan Scott’s take on the often misunderstood Gewürztraminer is set to change perceptions and prove that New Zealand-produced Gewürz is a wine of top international quality.
The ultimate match for spicy Asian food, this wine can also be enjoyed with the exotic flavours of Vietnamese dumplings and sweet Middle Eastern delicacies such as Baklava or rice pudding thanks to its softer and more delicate finish on the nose – allowing its gorgeous candied fig and lightly dusted Turkish delight flavours to shine through.
Lead winemaker, Josh Scott, notes the Generations Gewürz is just as enjoyable on its own without food. “The lychee and tickly spice flavours are well balanced in the wine, allowing it to sit neatly on the palate. While some Gewürz can be overly perfumed and difficult to enjoy on their own – ours by contrast is really delicate, without too much overpowering lychee or pungency. We take our time nurturing the vine to ensure we produce the very best fruit to be picked at the right time – in the dead of the night.”
