Stonecroft ‘Old Vine’ Gimblett Gravels Hawke’s Bay Gewurztraminer 2010

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
Fruit from Mere Road, fermented partially in oak to 13.0% alc. with 10 g/L rs, very pale green-hued straw-yellow colour, this has a very fine, coolish herb-infused nose with florals and musk, a hint of spice and spearmint showing. Off-dry, this is still tightly bound and youthfully fresh and firm. Turkish Delight and roses with a little ginger spice show, building in intensity, but balanced by good acidity. A little heat is noticeable on finish. This is a firm and concentrated wine that will develop richness over the next 3-5 years.  Feb 2012  RRP $35.00
