Main Divide Gewurztraminer 2022, North Canterbury

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 06-Nov-2022
Bright, pale yellow with depth, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full and fragrant, aromas of white lily and magnolia filled the glass, underlying lychee, rambutan, rose petals and spice. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, aromas of lychee, rambutan entwined with ripe pear, rose petals and ginger, white lily and magnolia linger to a long, perfumed finish. Oily, honeyed textured mouthfeel shows weight and plushness; refreshing and balanced acidity compliments and drives a long, spice finish. This juicy, plush Gewurztraminer exhibit tropical fruit with ginger, rose and rich floral fragrance on an opulent off-dry palate. Match with liver pate and spicy Asian fare over the next 3-5 years. The grapes were crushed and left on skins for a short time, fermented in old oak puncheons naturally to 13.5% alc, 13.5g/l RS, and matured in barrels for approx 3 months. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $21.99
