Gewurztraminer. It's a mouthful to say, but at its best the grape also offers mouthfilling peach, apple and pear flavours with some of the most exhilarating freshly-cut fruit aromas you’re ever likely to experience.
Lani Wines is the solo venture of winemaker Alana McGettigan. Since 2002, she has been making wine throughout Italy, France, and her native New Zealand. Always inspired by the lively aromatic, and food friendly wines of Northern Italy and France, her attraction to Gewürztraminer was only natural. Alana's aunt and uncle have been growing small parcels of quality Gewürztraminer for several years. It is a fickle grape variety and each year they work hard to control the yield to achieve the right balance between flavour and sugar ripeness.
