Main Divide North Canterbury Gewürztraminer 2022 $21

From a cooler-than-average summer, comes a spicy, zesty gewurztraminer which boasts all the classic aromatics I love (lychee, ginger, manuka honey and jasmine) but injects baking spices like clove and nutmeg alongside dried citrus peel and crystalised mango. It’s a plump, plush, sexy thing to sip, yet has a zing of herbaceousness at its core to keep things fresh and frisky. Chill it right down and serve with Annabel Langbein’s Crunchy Chicken Salad  with Spring Onion and Ginger Dressing (NZ Herald CANVAS Magazine Sat Dec 10 2022)
