Haythornthwaite ‘Susan’ Martinborough Dry Gewurztraminer 2010

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Jun-2012
Bright straw-yellow colour with pale green hues, light on rim. This has a fresh nose with volume and depth, the fruit a little reserved in expression. Earthy ginger, lychees and exotic florals intermingle with herb notes, the aromatics showing an ethereal delicacy. Dry and full-bodied, this has weight and alcohol drive through the palate. The floral and spicy fruit is restrained but shows with purity. Moderately low acidity contributes to the soft mouthfeel and textures. This has good presence, and the wine finishes with perfumed and spice nuances along with the characteristic varietal bitterness. Though subtle flavoured, this has the body and power to match pork, ham and hearty Mediterranean cuisine over the next 4-5 years. Fruit hand-picked, WBP and cool-fermented to 14.5% alc. and 3.0 g/L rs, 17.0+/20 Jun 2012 RRP $37.00
