Wine Of The Week
Dry River 2014 Lovat Vineyard Gewurztraminer, Martinborough $45
This is a truly gorgeous Gewurztraminer with wonderful concentration and peacock’s tail-like display of subtle flavours on its incredibly lengthy finish. It’s a heady mix of floral, spice and exotic fruit characters which promises to get even more exciting with bottle age. This wine supports my long-held belief Gewurztraminer is Dry River’s most outstanding wine. Score: 98/100 ★★★★★ – view on bobcambpebll.nz
