Food Pairings for Spy Valley Gewürztraminer
Named after the satellite listening post located over the road from the winery, Spy Valley is in the Waihopai Valley in Marlborough. Happily for us they appear more interested in fine wine than exploding cigars, and recent vintages have seen the winery's trophy cabinet filled to bursting. Like most Marlborough wineries, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc are Spy Valley specialties but winemaker Ant Mackenzie and his team also make a great range of aromatic whites including Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris. Their quality was recognised in March 2007 when the winery became the first ever producer to win four trophies in the same year at the Sydney Wine Show. Spy Valley's Gewürztraminer is produced using innovative, modern winemaking practices. After gentle pressing, the wine is fermented slowly to retain the intense rose-petal aromas of the grapes, then aged on lees for several months in stainless steel tanks before bottling. This wine is fruit-driven in style, typically with intense aromas of rose-petal, Turkish delight and lychee with a full-bodied, oily palate.
