Raymond Chan 5 Star Award - 2017 Gewürztraminer



We are happy to have received the 5 Star Raymond Chan award for our 2017 Gewürztraminer! Check out Raymond's comments about our Gewürztraminer below. 

Ruru Central Otago Gewürztraminer 2017 iconStarGoldiconStarGoldiconStarGoldiconStarGoldiconStarGold 

Bright pale straw-yellow colour, very pale edged. The nose is very fresh and youthfully taut with a finely concentrated core of white florals and exotic rose-petal notes along with lychees, subtle spices, Turkish Delight and a suggestion of honey and musk. The fruit is expressed with clarity and has intensity. Medium-dry to taste, the palate has tightly bound and penetrating flavours of exotic florals, with hints of white pepper and spices, Turkish Delight and honey.

The fruit forms a concentrated heart with soft, rounded textures and balanced acidity. The wine has a fresh firmness but flows smoothly with good linearity, leading to a sustained finish. This is a taut and penetrating medium-dry Gewürztraminer with good depth and intensity of exotic florals, spices and musk and a smooth mouthfeel.

Serve with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisine over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Immigrant’s Vineyard’, a portion given a few hours skin contact, the remainder WBP, and all fermented in stainless-steel to 13.3% alc. and 7.2 g/L RS. 18.5/20 Feb 2018
