Stonecroft Hawke's Bay Gewurztraminer 2013 13.5%
Voluptuous and fragrant with a blossoming bouquet of pot-pourri and rose petals, gentle tropical fruits and sweet apple baked pear; French lavender layer emerges after a while. The palate follows through with a generous and spicy package of flavors - pear and apples - baked and fresh; a mild oily texture on the finish enhances the length - medium+ and acidity - medium. The gentle warmth of the alcohol brings the whole package together.
A great wine for salmon based dishes with Asian seasonings.
