Charles Wiffen Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2009

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Aug-2011
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with a pale edge, this has a refined bouquet redolent of subtle exotic florals, apricots, wild honey, ginger and Turkish Delight. Medium-dry to slightly sweet to taste, the palate has rich and exotic floral and spice flavours on a refined, near unctuously textured, near oily and mouth-filling palate that has harmony as its highlight. Restrained in style without any blowsiness, this is fine-featured, with alcohol and acidity in poise. Excellent length. Fruit from Peter Rose's block, fermented to 13.4% alc. and 12 g/L rs. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4 years. 18.5+/20 Aug 2011 RRP $24.00 Bright, light golden straw-yellow colour, and a full, dense, intense and rich bouquet of lychees and rose petals. The 13.4% alc. is noticeable, but not intrusive, and the wine tastes off-dry, with 12 g/L rs. It is the combination of tight construction and lack of blowsiness, along with super-fine unctuous textures that is remarkable here. This will develop and become richer, and more voluptuous over the next 3-4+ years.  Apr 2011  RRP $24.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
