Spade Oak ‘Voysey’ Patutahi Gewurztraminer 2012

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 06-May-2013
Brilliant, even golden-yellow colour, lighter on edge. The bouquet is soft, full and broad, with up-front aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits, tropical fruits and musk entwined with Turkish Delight and ginger. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, this has mouthfilling flavours of ripe tropical fruits, ginger, spices and musk. There are rich and luscious savoury honey elements, enlivened by fresh, bright acidity. While open and accessible, there is an underlying solidness that carries the flavours to a long, fruit-driven finish. This is an up-front and flavoursome savoury-spicy medium-dry Gewurztraminer with some richness and good freshness. Serve with Middle Eastern and Asian fare over the next 3 years. Fruit from two sites in the Patutahi district of Gisborne, cool-fermented to 12.8% alc. and 18 g/L rs. 220 dozen made. 17.5-/20 May 2013 RRP $20.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
