Johanneshof Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2017

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Apr-2018
Full, even yellow colour with light lemon-gold hues. The nose is taut and elegant in presentation with intense and penetrating fruit aromas of exotic florals and Turkish Delight melded with piquant floral and root-ginger notes, along with nuances of herbs, spices and musk. The nose is firmly concentrated. Medium in sweetness and medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of exotic florals, tropical fruit and Turkish Delight, root-ginger, cool florals and herbs, with nuances of spice and musk. The palate is subtly rich and has an unctuous suggestion, with soft acidity adding to the roundness. The palate is smooth-flowing with an underlying core and line, leading to a lingering finish of spices, ginger and herbs. This is an intense and tightly-bound medium Gewurztraminer with flavours of exotic florals, root-ginger, herbs, spices and musk on a smooth palate. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4 years. Fruit from the Lower Wairau Valley, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 15 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Apr 2018 RRP $30.00
