Hunter’s Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2017

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2017
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. This has a very fine, elegantly concentrated and intense nose with aromas of rose-petals and exotic florals, Turkish Delight and notes of lychees. The aromatics show a degree of opulence, and are classical and beautifully refined in expression. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and deep, densely packed, rounded heart with a soft unctuousness. The flavours of rose-petals, florals and Turkish Delight are entwined with nuances of spice and lychees. The mouthfeel has underlying power, with soft acidity, and the wine carries seamlessly to a long, deep, lingering finish. This is a rich, unctuous, deep-fruited dry Gewurztraminer with rose-petal, Turkish Delight and spice flavours. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the company’s Rapaura Road vineyard, cloudy juice fermented in stainless-steel with 15% in seasoned French oak to 13.5% alc. and 1.7 g/L RS. 18.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $24.99
