Waimea Estates Nelson Gewurztraminer 2015

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 08-Dec-2016
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light golden-green hues, paler on the rim. The bouquet is full and harmoniously melded with voluminous aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight and nuances of root ginger, unfolding soft, exotic spice elements that build in depth and concentration. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features bright, lively and succulent flavours of rose-petals, Turkish Delight, honey and spices, along with nuances of root ginger. The mouthfeel is refreshing with fresh, lacy acidity balancing the subtly unctuous textures and the wine is guided by a fine-featured line, leading to a dry, lingering finish of florals and spices. This is a bright and lively medium-dry Gewurztraminer with rose-petal, Turkish Delight, honey and spice flavours on a near-unctuous palate that finished fine and dry. Match with mildly spicy Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Three parcels of fruit from the Waimea Plains and one from Ruby Bay, fermented in tank to 13.5% alc., and 11 g/L RS, the wine aged on light lees. 18.5+/20 Dec 2016 RRP $23.00
