Johanneshof Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2015

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Nov-2016
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is tightly bound with penetrating aromas of tropical fruits, lychees, rose-petal florals and root ginger, unfolding a subtle, savoury musk suggestion providing complexing detail. The aromatics have a youthfully fresh, steely definition. Medium-dry to medium in taste and medium-bodied, the palate features mouthfilling and rich flavours with layers of tropical fruits, rose-petal florals, Middle Eastern spices and earthy root ginger. The wine possesses a soft phenolic texture to balance the fruit sweetness, and the palate is underlined by a firm, concentrated, steely-edged core that carries to a long, lingering, complex finish of sweet exotic fruits, savoury spices, florals and ginger. This is a layered and detailed medium-dry Gewurztraminer with complex sweetly rich exotic fruits and savoury spice and ginger flavours with a concentrated, firm and youthful core. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 4+ years. Fruit from Grovetown, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 19.0 g/L RS. 18.5+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $39.00
