Wine: Richmond Plains 2012 Gewurztraminer
Awarded: Silver (2014)
Notes: A fantastic example of a NZ Gewurtz, produced in seemingly limited quantities, however we are informed there are possibly a few cases lurking in the recesses of Richmond Plains cellar- I do however urge you to seek out, and place your hands on any remaining stock! Aroma’s of peach, rose petal, and hints of a flint minerality. A well balanced palate, with floral notes in the form of rose petal, and honeysuckle, and tropical fruit nuances, with flavours of lychee, and peach. Moderately spiced for balance, leading to a sustained rich fruit finish. Drinks well now, or cellar for further unfolding until 2018.
