In certain areas of New Zealand Gewürztraminer flourishes and creates outstanding elegant, perfumed wines. The nose of Wairau River's Gewürztraminer is aromatic and full of rose petals and orange rind. The perfumed aromas follow through on the palate with a touch of sweet spices to add complexity. This wine is well balanced with good weight on the palate, a refreshing acidity, and a good length.

Wairau River wines take their name from the river that runs through the heart of the Marlborough wine region. (Wairau is Maori for `many waters`). The Rose family were pioneers in planting vines in the 1970`s and after originally selling the grapes to other wineries, they launched their own label in the early 1990`s. Today their foresight has created a very successful company which remains family owned and run. Wairau River is one of the largest independent wine estates in Marlborough, and the range of elegant wines is characteristically expressive of its Marlborough roots.
