Natalie's Score: 90/100

Aromatic and classic and bone-dy. Floral with baking spices and lychee but not over-the-top. Try with curries, spices and Asian fare. Spectacular Spicy Wine

Bright, even straw-yellow colour with light golden hues, pale on rim. This has an elegantly proportioned, intense and finely presented bouquet of musk, ginger and rose petals along with nuances of smoke and flint adding layers of interest. Dry, tightly concentrated and densely packed with flavours of musk, root ginger and Turkish Delight, this is softly textured and carries a subtle richness, with discreet acidity providing good tension. The palate possesses an underlying power and a little alcoholic generosity, driving the fruit, leading to a long, nuanced finish. This is a concentrated and refined Gewurztraminer to serve with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-4+ years. Score: 5 (out of 5). Aromatic & Flavourful.
