Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Gewurztraminer 2012

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 21-Oct-2014
Bright, even, light golden-yellow colour with straw hues. This has a voluminous nose with rich and concentrated ripe aromas of tropical fruits, root ginger and Turkish Delight along with layers of honey, musk and marmalade with complexing flinty, mineral notes. Medium in sweetness and medium-full bodied, rich and opulent flavours of exotic tropical fruits, crystallised ginger, rose-petal florals and honey are infused with layers of complex flint nuances. The mouthfeel is soft and weighty, the acidity a little low, and the palate near opulent. Some alcohol heat and power emerges, driving the palate to a strong, flavoursome finish with an array of spice and musk elements. This is a fulsome and opulent, medium-sweet Gewurztraminer with complex spice, ginger and flinty flavours. Serve with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4+ years. Fruit with a portion botrytis-affected, given skin contact and indigenous yeast fermented in seasoned oak to 14.0% alc. and 21.9 g/L RS, with some of the wine aged in barrel. 18.5/20 Oct 2014 RRP $28.95
