Blackenbrook Gewurztraminer 2021, Nelson

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 01-Oct-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is full and spicy, penetrating attractive aromas of Turkish delight, rose water, underlying guava, lychee and ginger dusting. Medium-full bodied, dry to taste, harmonious nuances of guava, lychee and Nashi pear are pure, unfolding rose petals, Turkish delight and delicate ginger and white spice. The palate is smooth and flows on an oily texture drive; there's concentration and weight contributed by ripe fruit and a touch of residual sugar, leaving a balanced, long finish. This Gewurztraminer has lovely aromatics of varietal characters and concentrated flavours on a smooth, enticing palate. Match with yellow fish curry and Sichuan cuisine over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed, cool-fermented to 14% alc, 5g/l RS, extended lees contact, 5% oak-aged, unfined. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $25
