Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2013

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jul-2015
Fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard and the nearby ‘Woodward’ site, from vines 12-30 y.o., fermented in stainless-steel, the pressings in oak barrels to 14.0% alc. and 8.2 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. Brilliant straw-yellow colour with green-gold hues, lighter on the rim. This has a very elegant, refined tightly bound and penetrating nose with an interwoven amalgam of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight, spices, root ginger and minerals. The aromatics are expressed with clarity, purity and precision, lending a steely intensity. Off-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is crisp, tightly packed and taut with a concentrated and firm core of exotic florals, root ginger, musk and minerals. The wine flows with good energy and linearity, the flavours precise and clear. The wine grows in richness and lusciousness, and a fine textural thread guides the flavours to a very long, lingering, focussed finish. This is an elegant, intensely flavoured off-dry Gewurztraminer with freshness and clarity. Serve with poultry, pork and semi hard cheeses over the next 4-5 years. 18.5+/20 Jul 2015 RRP $23.99
