Description

From the Te Awanga website and so beautifully said, that is has to be repeated: “Superstar heavy-hitter Mike Tyson once said “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” Making a dessert wine is a little like that. Carefully laid plans are swiftly thrown out when grapes won’t press, juice won’t settle, ferments won’t start … I’ve never made a sticky the way I planned, but never made one I don’t love.” Made from Gewurztraminer, Gew for short, (much easier to say) from their own vineyard and it is the quintessential expression of Gew, wow.

Smells

pure rose petal, rose water and Turkish delight with hints of lychee

Tastes

a lusciously sweet wine which screams of florals and perfume. Gorgeous flavours that are overwhelming but still I cannot help but love them. Gew is naturally very low in acid but its all about the firm, slightly bitter finish that gives balance to those floral perfumed flavours and luscious sweetness. Hard to match with a desert, so go with a perfectly ripened Brie that’s oozing.
