Stonecroft ‘Old Vine’ Hawke’s Bay Gewurztraminer 2007

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 27-Feb-2012
Fruit from Mere Road, fermented to 13.5% alc. and 7 g/L rs. Very even straw-gold, with a pale edge. The bouquet is tight and steely, with a minerally austerity that unfolds to show excellent florals with hints of savoury musk and earthy herbs. Off-dry to taste, there is a firm core to the floral and musky herb fruit. The textures are very fine with a little oiliness, and the acidity is in excellent balance. Some varietal bitterness is present, but countered by delicately lush, honied notes on the finish. This is a fine-featured, slow-to-mature wine that will keep 5-6 years.  Feb 2012
