Lani Wines is the exciting solo venture of winemaker Alana McGettigan, who has been making wine throughout Italy, France, and her native New Zealand since 2002. Always inspired by the lively aromatic, and food friendly wines of Northern Italy and France, her attraction to Gewürztraminer was only natural. The 2012 vintage marks an impressive debut that already ranks amongst the best New Zealand example of this tricky, fickle variety. Using fruit from small parcels of quality Gewürztraminer grapes owned by Alana's aunt and uncle, this is a beautifully balanced example which achieves a perfect balance between flavour and sugar ripeness. Expressive and aromatic on the nose, this wine shows lifted notes of Turkish delight, exotic fruit and crystallized ginger on the nose. The palate has weight and texture without sweetness, giving the elegant exotic fruits and exotic spice flavours good persistence and elegance. A wonderful partner to a myriad of Thai cuisine and complex fish dishes.
