A stunning rendition of this tremendously fickle varietal. One of Framingham’s neighbours (and fellow K&L direct import) Te Whare Ra makes one of the best and most historic Gewurtz in New Zealand...there certainly seem to be something about this locale and classy Alsatian / German varietals. Capturing the haunting perfume and exotic flavors of the grape whilst maintaining balance and freshness is the key. This organic fruit is hand picked, given some skin contact before a wild ferment in neutral French oak begins. A small (12%) "vendage tardive" element is added with a dash of botrytis to add another level of complexity. (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L NZ Wine Buyer)

Baking spice, lychee, creme brulee and ripe peach form the flavor profile of this complex and unique wine. There are some waxy tropical notes in the middle where just a hint of sweetness seems to poke through all that richness but the long finish of bitter pith maintains the intensity and focus.
