New Zealand's Zephyr select the grapes for their Gewurztraminer from a Single Vineyard in Dillon's Point, Marlborough. Separated into one parcel for whole bunch pressing and the other pressed with stalks and skins before filtration. Just 2% of the blend undergoes skin ferment for up to 5 days, with another 5% that sees very old French oak barrels and undergoes a 'feral' fermentation. The main parcels are fermented in stainless steel with very little additives.
The result of the final blend is Gewurztraminer complexity at its finest. Bright straw green in colour. with enticing aromas of red capsicum, gooseberry, lychee, rose petal and freshly cut lemongrass. The palate is balanced and long with rich, lush texture, lifted floral character and crisp acidity. Try with roast pork, oily fish, noodles and curries, blue, pungent, or smoked cheeses.
Zephyr is run by the fourth generation of the Glover family, Ben, who humbly refres to himself as the janitor. Their vineyards were planted in 1985 by the meandering Opawa River in the renowned Marlborough sub-region of Dillon's Point. Zephyr's aromatic white wines (Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, Riesling) have an outstanding reputation, being compared to premium European appellations such as Graves. All the wines will have organic certification from the 2020 vintage.
