Waipara River Estate ‘Single Vineyard Release’ Waipara Valley Gewurztraminer 2012

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 30-Jul-2013
Bright straw-yellow colour with green hues, pale on rim. This has a very fine and intense bouquet with pure rose-petal florals enhanced by fresh herb, musk and root ginger detailing. Medium to taste, refined and delicately luscious flavours of exotic florals, rose-petals, honey and musk grow to form a fine palate core with concentration and drive. There is power from the alcohol, and the linearity is supported by fresh, slippery acidity which leads to a long and sustained finish. Attractive nuances of exotic florals and musk feature and linger. This is an elegant and delicately luscious Gewurztraminer with finesse, and a concentrated core. Match with fine Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from 30 y.o. vines fermented to 14.0% alc. 18.5/20 Jul 2013 RRP $24.00
