Te Mania Nelson Gewurztraminer 2015

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 28-Jun-2016
Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter edged. The nose is tightly bound and slender in presentation, but with good intensity of exotic florals and root ginger, he aromatic showing youthful freshness and cut. With aeration, nutty elements emerge and the intensity builds. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features a rounded, well-concentrated core of exotic rose-petal florals, lychees and root ginger. The palate is guided by a very fine-textured line with balanced alcoholic power and drive, and integrated acidity. The wine has youthful freshness and energy and the core carries to a lingering finish of musk, ginger and spices. This is an elegantly concentrated medium-dry Gewurztraminer with root ginger flavours and good drive and line. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from a single site in the Apple Valley on Moutere clay, two-thirds WBP and one-third given some skin contact, and fermented in stainless-steel to 13.9% alc. and 13 g/L RS. Vegan wine. 17.5/20 Jun 2016 RRP $22.99
