Huia Gewurztraminer 2014

Regular price $26.00
The 2014 Huia Gewürztraminer is Estate Grown on Huia’s Winsome Estate vineyard, on the seaward side of the Wairau Valley. The vineyard soils are a mixture of orthic clay and black sand creating a low vigour vineyard.

Harvest commenced on the 27th March, when the grapes were ripe and in superb condition. The grapes were picked at an average of 23.9 Brix achieving real ripeness with rich turkish delight aromas and tropical fruits on the nose. Once settled, half the juice was fermented in neutral French oak puncheons, with some light lees stirring to provide a softer textured element to the wine. This wine was aged on light lees in neutral French oak for 10 months before being prepared for bottling.

The nose has fragrant rose petal notes and candied fruit. Generous lychee and rose water flavours fill out the aromatic palate. This is a rich, succulent style of Gewürztraminer showing complex layers of flavours and a long lasting finish. This wine is certified organic and is vegetarian & vegan friendly.

Huia Vineyards is a family-owned winery based in Marlborough's Wairau Valley. Claire and Mike Allan bought the initial vineyard land in 1990 and launched Huia in 1996, with a focus on handcrafting wines that express the richness of Marlborough grapes from the vineyard to the table. This quest for quality is represented by the Huia feather, a symbol of dignity, wisdom and elegance. The Allans are acutely aware of the need to preserve the magnificent environment that provides their unique wine. The carboNZero accreditation is an internationally recognised endorsement to this commitment to lighten their carbon footprint. Huia’s reputation for producing high-end aromatic wines from Marlborough is second to none.
