Rating: 5 stars The lovely 2016 vintage (5*) is from two 'passes' through the vineyard, when 80 per cent of the grapes were botrytis-affected. Bright, light yellow/green, it is full-bodied and youthful, with ripe, peachy, spicy, gently honeyed flavours, in a sweet but not super-sweet style (80 grams/litre of residual sugar), with strong personality. It should be long-lived. Michael Cooper Rating: 4 stars I’ve loved Stonecroft gewürztraminer since aeons ago, yet this is the first time I’ve tried it made in a dessert style and I’ve got to say, it’s a real treat. I love the tangy, musky, ginger and lychee flavours, all wrapped up in a layer of manuka honey and spice. The acidity is super-refreshing and provides beautiful balance to the intense natural sweetness. This organically produced, dessert wine is drinking well as a baby, but I can’t wait to see how it develops over the next few years. Serve with a wedge of aged, crumbly cheddar. Yum! Yvonne Lorkin
