Beyond normality is something that most struggle to perceive. Extravagance in a wine, Poppies Gewürztraminer simply dances to the tune of everything beyond supposed normality. Her outrageous persona of lifted notes, unequivocal flavours and naughty vibrancy is not to everyone’s palate, just the adventurous and intrigued. A small amount goes a long way – ginger spice, lychees, Turkish delight and rocking orange citrus. This young lady has it all, matching flavour with juiciness, finishing utterly spicy, she is particular to her own world… an inspiration really.
It is the intention of Poppies Martinborough to make beautifully hand-crafted wines that simply show the character and evoke the varietal flavours and purity of expression from the land and the hands of the makers. Poppies draws on traditional winemaking techniques, with a deep respect for the past, ensuring the hand-crafted wine is never fashionable but always adored. When young, their wines are fresh, vibrant and pure, however with time the true essence unfolds to give more subtle, sophisticated and intriguing characters; be patient and you shall be rewarded.
