Zephyr Gewurztraminer

2014, Marlborough New Zealand
  • Owned and operated by the Glover family (ridiculously talented son Ben is the man behind the winemaking)
  • 4 Stars (85/100) - Bob Campbell
  • Sheer class with spicy Asian cuisine
  • RRP $26.99


    If we say "Zephyr" and you say "Ford" you’re on the wrong wave length (and showing your age!) – we’re talking the very classy wine label with international acclaim, owned and operated by the Glover family.

    A third generation farming family Owen and Wendy turned their Dillon’s Point farm in Blenheim into a vineyard back in 1985. The Glover’s their own label Zephyr back in 2007 with a real focus on the aromatic styles (Gewurztraminer, Riesling and Sauvy)..

    Their son Ben is in charge of the winemaking side of things and chances are you’ve probably slurped on something Ben’s had a hand in making. Wither Hills, Waipara Hills, Mud House and Corbans are just a few of the big names Glover’s been behind.

    Spicy and lush – it’s the style of white that only this variety can throw at you. Sheer class with spicy Asian cuisine or ripe wash rind cheeses.

    The Lowdown: 13.5% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
