Greystone Gewurztraminer 2014

Lightly coloured with gold highlights our 2014 Gewurztraminer shows beautiful intensity and balance.  Aromatically typical of this variety with plenty of musk and rose petal, along with stonefruit and melon.  Overall an aromatic impression of a spice market in the cool morning air.  The palate shows Turkish delight, ginger, rockmelon and a touch of smoke.  To enjoy as an aperitif or a match for lightly spiced meals.

 

REVIEWS & ACCOLADES

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

Pure, concentrated Gewurztraminer with classic Turkish delight/rose petal/potpourri flavours supported by an ethereal texture. Beautiful wine in an off/dry style with subtle sweetness supported by gentle acidity rather than tannins.

18.5/20 Raymond Chan

Bright, light golden colour. This has a tight, intense and concentrated nose with an array of aromas from savoury florals and rose-petals to root ginger. Off-dry to taste (8 g/L RS), this has good power from the alcohol, noticeable but not intrusive or unbalanced, and a strong, positive, concentrated core of spicy and gingery fruit. The textures are smooth and the phenolic handling excellent. As with the variety, acidity seems lowish, but there’s sufficient for drive and liveliness. There are layers of detail from the indigenous yeast and use of puncheons. This is an excellent, powerful and definitive Gewurztraminer in its own right.
