This low yielding Gewürztraminer was handpicked from Yealands Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley at optimum ripeness.
Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Gewürztraminer is wonderfully rich and perfumed. it shows concentrated lychee, floral and ginger flavours with a refreshingly dry finish.
The Seaview Vineyard is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours.
The parcel of Gewürztraminer that makes this wine is located on a warm sheltered terrace, within the Seaview vineyard. The soil is predominantly windblown loess.
Food Match: Spicy dishes such as Vietnamese duck salad or Thai fish curry.
