Te Awanga Estate Hawke’s Bay Gewurztraminer 2013

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 14-Nov-2013
Bright, even, pale straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale edged. This has a concentrated and intensely powerful bouquet of ginger, spices, rose-petal florals, musk and honey, expressed with focus and clarity. Dry to taste, concentrated, dense and powerful flavours of ginger, spices and exotic musky, florals form a weighty and driven palate. The mouthfeel is rounded, opening out with blossoming flavours. The wine has fruit extract, alcohol power and some phenolic presence, all combined and integral, carrying the flavours to a very long, firmly generous and warm finish. This is a powerful, driven, dry Gewurztraminer with ginger and spice flavours. Match with poultry, pork and semi-hard cheeses over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the company’s inland river terrace vineyard, WBP and indigenous yeast fermented in tank and puncheon to 14.8% alc. and <2 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months on lees. 18.5-/20 Nov 2013 RRP $29.99
