Johanneshof Gewurztraminer is considered a "Super Classic New Zealand Wine by Michael Cooper, Buyer's Guide to New Zealand"
Johanneshof Cellars is a small artisan boutique winery producing wines from hand harvested grapes, sourced only from their vineyards and growers in Marlborough. The Vineyards are jointly owned and operated by Edel Everling, a fifth generation winemaker from Germany and Warwick Foley from Marlborough. Both winemakers trained in Germany. All wines are made on site, combining the traditions of the art of winemaking with modern technology. Their principals are to crop at a very low level to enhance fruit quality and flavours.
The Vineyards boasts New Zealand's first underground rock cellar which has been tunnelled into solid sandstone. The cool, stable temperature and high natural humidity of this unique cellar provide ideal storage conditions to allow the maturation of wines in French Barriques and German barrels. In this traditional cellar, one of Johanneshof’s flagship wines- the Methode Traditionnelle ‘EMMI’ is fermented in its bottle and aged on its yeast lees for more seven years, before being turned carefully by hand on the French riddling racks and disgorged in the winery 20m above. A chamber at the very end of the shaft provides a perfect home for the Winemakers' personal wine library. Tours of the cellar are available by appointment.
