2018 Askerne Gewürtztraminer, Hawke’s Bay
2018 was a great year for Gewurztraminer at Askerne. With perfumed notes of lychee, rose petal, Turkish delight, orange peel and citrus fruits, this wine gives way to a full-bodied, balanced, lingering finish. Pair with a range of Asian cuisines, platters or just enjoy it with good friends as an aperitif.

Askerne Estate winery commenced in April 1993 when wine lovers John and Kathryn Loughlin purchased the original 11.6 hectares site in Te Mata Mangateretere Road. John and Kathryn had studied winemaking and viticulture in the previous years with Kathryn, as the more diligent student, achieving the higher grades.
They called the property Askerne, being the olde English name of Kathryn’s birthplace, Askern in Yorkshire, England.
