Roll over: White - Aromatic and Floral
Staying true to the variety whilst breaking through the archetype of a wine is what we aim to achieve here, too, like with the Pinot Gris. Long, drawn-out fermentation in old barrels over about 9 - 10 months is what gives us the complexities that we try to expose in Gewürztraminer. The unravelling of the layers takes time and patience to expose them respectfully.
The cellaring capacity of this Gewürztraminer is seven to ten years for optimal results. - Dry River
Roll over: A complex, aromatic wine with a naturally lower level of alcohol.
Enticing perfumed fragrance combines persistent aromas of apple and citrus fruit with delicate floral nuances and a hint of spice. On the palate, ripe apple and a hint of orange are well seasoned with a spicy piquancy and just a dash of brown sugar. Jancis Robinson.com
Roll over: Hunter Valley-based Robin Tedder MW of Glenguin is an NZ national and acquired this vineyard planted on schist in 2002. At between 430 and 490 m it's the highest vineyard in Gibbston, Central Otago's coolest subregion.
Pretty delicate in texture with a certain amount of sweetness, as is the Central Otago wont, but it's certainly restrained and has an appetising dry finish and a refreshing mineral streak through it. There's a certain pungency too. Good lift on the finish. Jancis Robinson.com
Roll over: Re-create the Gleneagles moment at home with this Fluted Highball Glass, perfect for any cocktail lover.
Dimension: 380ml, H15.5cm
Richard Brendon partnered with Gleneagles Hotel to develop the Fluted Collection for their American Bar, naturally keeping the whisky and cocktail lover very much in mind.
Drawing inspiration from the decadent cocktail culture of the Art Deco 1920s, the Fluted stemware is light and perfectly proportioned, whilst the tumblers are reassuringly weighty, and offer a wonderful hold for an evening whisky. Mouth-blown by master craftsmen in Bohemia, the collection takes its name from the fluted cuts that run the length of each piece.
In Richard’s signature style, Fluted combines just the right amount of traditional and contemporary elements to create a progressive yet timeless collection.
