Greystone Waipara Gewurztraminer 2011

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Oct-2011
Fruit hand-picked and foot-crushed, fermented to 14.0% alc. and 15 g/L rs. Brilliant light straw-yellow colour, this has an extremely intense and penetrating, but finely expressed nose of rose-petal florals, spices and lifted fermentation esters. Medium in sweetness, the rose florals and lifted spice flavours are framed in a very elegant, seamlessly textured and fine, oily palate with lacy acidity underneath. The fruit depth is a feature, forming a core and leads to a very long, sustained finish. This will become richer over the next 3-4+ years.  Oct 2011
