Longbush Wines 'Bird Series' 2018 Gewurztraminer
Singing proudly in the dawn chorus, the native bellbird, Korimako would appreciate the sweet nectar and honey dew flavours found in this Gewurztraminer.
7km from Gisborne, on the banks of the Waimata river, the Longbush Eco-Sanctury is restoration project that will create a haven for endangered birds and plants. Anne and Jeremy Salmond, with the support of many friends and family, have embarked on this intrepid journey. Visit and support them at www.longbushreserve.org.
Hand picked fruit was gently caused then soaked on skins for 24 hours before pressing and fermented cool. The intense floral aroma shows fresh lychee character that carries to the palate. This wine is beautifully finished in an Alsacian style with moderate sweetness in harmony with flavour and alcohol, and with a tropical spicy finish.
