Released in August 2022 the Johanneshof Gewürztraminer has a light straw colour, floral nose with lychee, honey and rose petal. Weighty and powerful mouth feel with stunning spicy characters. Gorgeously floral tones grace the palate with a lingering finish.
It’s the perfect accompaniment to Asian cuisine, hearty dishes or your favourite cheese board.
The Johanneshof Gewürztraminer is one of New Zealand’s most awarded Gewürztraminer.
One of the most prestigious awards received for a previous Vintage (2004) of the Johanneshof Gewürztraminer is the ‘International Trophy for Champion Aromatic White Wine of the World’ at one of the world’s largest wine competitions ‘Decanter World Wine Awards' in London (2005).
Johanneshof Gewürztraminer has been included in Air New Zealand’s ‘FINE WINES OF NEW ZEALAND’ list of ‘Iconic New Zealand Wines’ every year since its inauguration in 2016.
Johanneshof Gewürztraminer was one of only two New Zealand Gewürztraminer to be named a ‘SUPER CLASSIC WINE OF NEW ZEALAND’ by Michael Cooper in his “Buyer’s Guide to New Zealand Wines” in 2010 and continues this status each year.
