Giesen has taken home the Trophy Champion Gewürztraminer at the 2017 Royal Easter Wine Show Wine Awards with The Brothers Gewürztraminer 2014. The same product also won Trophy Gewürztraminer at the NZ International Wine Show last year.
“Aromatics are something that New Zealand does really well,” said chief winemaker Nikolai St George. “We have a high amount of UV light and wonderfully clear skies – these help to produce incredibly aromatic fruit forward styles such as Gewürztraminer.”
According to St George, this wine is an ideal partner for fresh sashimi, pickled ginger, soya sauce and wasabi.
