Askerne Gewurztraminer

Country / Region: Hawkes Bay
Vineyard: Askerne
Varietal: Gewurztraminer
Vintage: 2013

Classic Gewurz packed with rose petal, turkish delight and ginger spice.

Bright, even, lemon-green hued golden-yellow colour, paler on rim. The nose is concentrated with intense and penetrating aromas of rose-petal florals, Turkish Delight and root ginger melded with tea-leaf Muscat-like elements and bitter musk. This is expressed with depth and finesse. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features solidly concentrated and packed flavours of rose-petal florals, root ginger, cloves and Middle Eastern spices, and musk. This has a strong core with balanced phenolic textures and underlying alcoholic power and drive, the acidity soft and integrated. The palate has considerable energy and linearity with its depth, and carries to a strong, long, and intensely flavoured spicy and gingery finish. This is a fulsome, powerfully concentrated dry Gewurztraminer with a deep core of rose-petals, root ginger and bitter musk. Serve with Middle Eastern fare over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Askerne’ vineyard, WBP with no skin contact, fermented in tank with a portion of late-picked fruit in barrel with indigenous yeast to 14.0% alc. and 5 g/L RS. 18.5/20 -- Raymond Chan
