Saint Clair Godfrey’s Creek Reserve Gewürztraminer 2020

Elegant and pure with aromas of orange and exotic spice.  

Winemakers: Stewart MacLennan and Hamish Clark

Pale gold.

An aromatic and focused nose with perfumed notes of citrus blossom, mandarin, peach, and a touch of
white pepper.

A complex and flavoursome palate layered with an abundance of stone fruit, citrus and spice.

Ageing Potential:
Drinking well now this wine will continue to evolve and reward for the next three to five years.

Grapes were sourced from the Godfrey’s Creek vineyard in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley. This low cropping, immaculately tended vineyard produces fruit with intense varietal expression. The grapes were picked in the cool of the night at the peak of flavour development.

Grapes were left to soak for an extended period to assist in the extraction of flavour from the skins. Post pressing the settled clear juice was cool fermented with aromatic yeast which enhances the varietal expression of
the wine.
