Johanneshof Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2012

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-May-2013
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with slight green-golden hues. This has an opulent bouquet of exotic fruits, lychees, rose-petals, homey and musk. Turkish Delight and ginger unfold, filling the nose with voluminous layers. Medium in sweetness, fulsome and rich flavours of tropical fruits, Turkish Delight and ginger combine with florals and honey, forming a near-unctuous mouthfeel. The acidity is soft, adding to the roundness and opulence. Some alcoholic generosity and power provides good drive and carries the lush, spicy and sweet flavours to a long and sustained finish with honey and rose-petal notes. This is an opulent and rich, medium Gewurztraminer with plenty of power. Serve with most Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked Gewurztraminer from the Wairau Plains fermented to 13.0% alc. and 23 g/L rs. 18.5+/20 May 2013 RRP $29.00
