Loveblock Gewurztraminer 2020

Loveblock Gewurztraminer has a pale gold colour with hints of green. Distinctly Gewurztraminer nose. Intense floral bouquet of roses and jasmine with a touch of sweet Turkish delight and orange zest. The off-dry palate has an oily texture that exudes guava, sweet mandarin and blood orange flavours.

100% Gewurztraminer. The grapes come entirely from Loveblock's family-owned Hillside vineyard in Lower Dashwood, where the elevation and windy location challenges the vines. Hillside is a 72 hectare vineyard on top of the hills overlooking the Awatere Valley, Marlborough. The soil has high levels of clay giving greater moisture retention, which is essential in the harsh natural environment of this vineyard.

Machine harvesting of the grapes. Once at the winery, the grapes go through crushing, destemming, must chilling and pressing. Half of the juice was in contact with the skins for approximately 6 hours. Floating, warming of the juice and inoculation with aromatic yeast then follows. Next is a cold fermentation until the wine reaches a balance. Finally, the wine is stabilised, filtered and bottled in June 2020.

Ageing potential: Cellar up to 10 years.
