Framingham Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2011

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jul-2012
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with some lemon hues, pale on rim. Elegantly proportioned on bouquet, this has well-concentrated, firm aromas of rose-petals and Turkish Delight that reveal notes of flinty lees work which add interest. Medium-dry to taste, flavours of rose-petals, ginger spice, honey and minerals flow gently through a weighty, concentrated palate. The mouthfeel is rounded and soft, and the acidity is low, adding to the fruit lusciousness, with a little heat apparent. The flavours have drive, and lead to a moderately long, layered finish of gentle floral and spice notes intermixed with flint and minerals. This is a soft, luscious Gewurztraminer with complexing lees work. Serve with Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. Estate grown fruit hand-picked and WBP, 80% wild yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 13.5% alc. and 13 g/L rs, the wine given 5 months lees contact. 17.5/20 Jul 2012 RRP $27.95
