Zephyr Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2016

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Jan-2017
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is finely presented and concentrated with fresh, intense and penetrating aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight, musk and honey, and a subtle layering of root ginger. Medium-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features gently mouthfilling, aromatic flavours of rose-petals, exotic fruits and Turkish Delight, along with musk and notes of root ginger. The fruit has good depth and the mouthfeel combines a soft richness and oiliness balanced by fresh underlying acidity. The wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured line with some underlying alcohol drive, leading to a long and sustained, ethereally aromatic, spicy finish. This is a gently mouthfilling, exotic medium-dry Gewurztraminer with subtle richness and power. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4 years. Fruit from the ‘Kerseley Estate’, from vines planted in 2008, hand-picked and WBP, given skin contact, a portion indigenous yeast fermented in barrel to 14.5% alc. and 9.6 g/L RS. 500 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Jan 2017 RRP $22.99
