Wine of the Week NZ

Dry River Lovat Vineyard Gewürztraminer 2017, Martinborough, NZD $50

Rich, complex gewürztraminer that lifts the variety a level or two above the normal fruit-and-floral wines on offer. It’s a powerful wine with layers of exotic fruits and spices together with a mix of floral notes. A sumptuous wine with a lengthy finish that won’t quit. Dry River has definitely done it again!
