Matawhero Single Vineyard Gewurztraminer 2020, Gisborne

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 12-Oct-2020
Bright, straw-yellow with a gold hue, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented, shows fragrant aromas of exotic lychee, Nashi pear, melded incredibly charming rose water nuances and young ginger. Dry to taste, medium-light bodied, refreshing and pure flavours of Nashi pear and lychee are focused, enlivened by freshly-squeezed lime, interwoven rose water and lifted young ginger notes on the close. The wine is well-packed with the purity of fruit; well-proportioned rose water and spicy ginger elements. Brilliant flavour intensity supported by fresh acidity, provide balance and a lingering refreshing finish. This is a well-balanced Gewurztraminer packed with the purity of exotic fruit, rose water and fresh ginger details on a dry and refreshing palate. Fruit from dry-farmed Matawhero Vineyard in the Riverpoint, fermented to 12.9% alc, 7.1 g/l RS. Aged on lees. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts Oct RRP $23.99
