New Zealand’s best Gewurztraminer?
Vinoptima 2010 Gewürztraminer, Gisborne, $75
Impressively rich, creamy Gewürztraminer with intense rose petal, pot-pourri, ginger and toasty flavours. All the better for a bit of bottle age, although I wonder how much longer it is going to develop. It seems to be in peak form now (sealed with a cork which I found extremely difficult to extract). Quite Alsace-like in texture and flavour. Classy wine. Score:95 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
