Johanneshof Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2013

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-May-2014
Bright straw-yellow colour with light gold-green hues. This has a full and voluminous nose with waves of rose-petal florals entwined with honey, ginger, spices and musk that unfold revealing exotic detail. Medium-dry to medium in taste, rich and lush fruit flavours showing exotic florals, ginger and spices form a fulsome and dense core. The mouthfeel is rounded and soft, but is well-poised and enlivened by excellent acid balance. The acidity provides a clean and refreshing edge to the wine. A refined phenolic line along with the lacy acidity guides the concentrated palate to a very long and sustained finish with honey, musk and spice notes. This is a beautifully balanced, posed, rich and exotic medium Gewurztraminer with density and length. Serve with pate, Middle Eastern and Chinese fare and semi-hard cheeses over the next 5 years. Hand-picked fruit fermented to 13.0% alc. and 21 g/L RS. 19.0-/20 May 2014 RRP $30.00
