Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: Spy Valley Gewürztraminer 2010
At this year’s New Zealand Wine Fair, I tasted a Gewürztraminer that was absolutely delicious. When I went back to my notes, I found I had tasted it at the same event last year. But the extra time in the bottle had really developed its bouquet. This Marlborough Gewürz exudes aromas of lychee, honeysuckle and rosewater. On the palate, it offers peach and pink grapefruit flavours.
Food match: Thai or Chinese
$17.25, Vintages #3287
