Dry River ‘Lovat’ Martinborough Gewurztraminer 2014

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 04-May-2015
Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour with some depth, paler on rim. This has a soft, full and ethereal nose of exotic rose-petal florals, tropical fruits honey, ginger and spices, the fruit building in piquancy and expressed with freshness and aromatic precision with time in the glass. Medium to taste and medium-bodied, rich and luscious fruit flavours of exotic tropical fruits, rose-petal florals, ginger, honey and musk form a refined core with unctuous textures and growing presence. The fruit is vibrant and the mouthfeel poised with fresh, edgy acidity balancing the sweetness, the wine flowing with good energy. The palate carries to a long, lush and aromatically blossoming finish. This is a fresh, well-poised medium Gewurztraminer with rich fruit and an unctuous mouthfeel. Match with mildly spicy Asian fare over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the ‘Lovat’ vineyard, with some minor botrytis influence, and the wine 13.0% alc. and 30 g/L RS. 18.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $45.00
