Haythornthwaite ‘Pamela’ Martinborough Auslese Gewurztraminer 2011

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Jun-2012
Soft, light golden-yellow colour with straw hues, pale on rim. This has fresh, ripe yellow stonefruit, Turkish Delight, lychee and honey aromas with layers of herbs, ginger and pepper, along with perfumed talc interest that fills the bouquet with detail. Medium-sweet to taste, rich and lush flavours of honey, spices and caramel intermingle with florals and talc. This is broad and mouthfilling with an oily, unctuous texture, the low acidity enhancing the depth and weight. A smooth and concentrated wine, this has an exotic creaminess that makes it quite decadent. The richness and subtly spiced honey notes linger on the finish. This is a full, rich and honied Gewurztraminer with unctuousness. Fruit from the ‘Haythornthwaite' hand-picked, WBP and cool-fermented to 9.4% alc. and 80.5 g/L rs. Serve on its own or match with light, creamy desserts or with cheeses over the next 4-5+ years. 18.5-/20 Jun 2012 RRP $37.00
