Spy Valley, Gewürztraminer 2015
Spy Valley are one of New Zealand’s largest growers of Gewürztraminer. This example is beautifully delicate and perfumed, with additional complexity from partial barrel fermentation before lees ageing in stainless steel tanks. Delicate rose water aromas waft from the glass. The mouthfeel is really smooth with a feeling of weight and some richness. Incredibly fragrant rose petals, parma violets and white flowers join fruitier flavours of pear, apple and soft, exotic spices.
