This wine has aromas of jasmine and white flowers, opulent spices, rose petal and banana. The palate of potpourri, lychees and white chocolate is long and lingering with a luscious off dry finish.
“This beauty is consistently one of New Zealand's finest Gewürztraminer”
Michael Cooper, The Listener
Newly released in August 2021 our Johanneshof Gewurztraminer 2021 is following its previous vintages with its golden colour, stunning aromatic bouquet of flowers and subtle exotic spice with a hint of sandalwood. Richly floral aromas greet your senses on the first sip with gentle kisses of rosewater, ginger and honeysuckle.
Beautifully textured and well rounded with a touch of sweetness this wine is powerful and elegant, with an lengthy finish.
Its the perfect accompaniment to Asian cuisine, hearty dishes or your favourite cheese board.
This beauty is one of our most loved wines and one of New Zealand’s most awarded Gewürztraminer.
