Description
 
In 1974, Lois and the late Rolfe Mills moved back to the family farm in Wanaka. Acting largely on a hunch born in the schist slopes of the Douro Valley many years earlier, they planted a few short rows of experimental vines on a small steep bank above their house. Despite the mostly negative opinions of the viticultural experts of the time, the climate data that Rolfe collected was encouragement enough for them to plant their first commercial vineyard block in 1982. The growing belief they had in the site’s potential to produce fine wine was soon to be realised.

Rose petals, white pepper, ginger and lychee all appear on the nose of the 2016 Gewurztraminer. It shines with varietal character yet shows terrific balance in that it's not heavy or oily in the slightest. It's almost rainwater-like in its purity, with just a hint of dusty texture on the finish. I hesitate to suggest aging it beyond the next few years, but it could surprise. Wine Advocate 90
