Anchorage Nelson Gewurztraminer 2015

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 28-Dec-2015
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with a suggestion of light gold, pale edged. The nose is fresh and bright with up-front, moderately deep aromas of lychees, rose-petal florals, nuances of root ginger, musk and honey with herb and mineral detail. Off-dry to taste and light-bodied, the palate shows light and clean fruit flavours of exotic florals along with nuances of root ginger and musk. This has good body with fine phenolic structure, and combined with the soft acidity lends a hint of unctuousness. The wine carries to a soft, dry, spicy finish. This is a light, gently spicy, exotic floral Gewurztraminer with soft textures and a hint of unctuousness. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Flett Road’ vineyard and from a Riwaka site, cool-fermented to 12.4% alc. and 6.2 g/L RS. 16.0/20 Dec 2015 RRP $17.00
