Main Divide North Canterbury Gewurztraminer

From a ‘great’ year for Gewurztraminer, the delicious 2018 vintage (5*) from Pegasus Bay is an irresistible buy. Very open and expressive in its youth, it was fermented in old oak puncheons and then barrel-aged for three months. Bright, light lemon/green, it is richly perfumed and full-bodied, with concentrated, peachy, spicy, slightly gingery flavours, an oily texture and a slightly sweet finish. Showing amazing richness for a $20 wine, it’s a drink-now or cellaring proposition.
