Henschke Noble Gewürztraminer 375mL
Pale gold with golden-green hues. Fragrant and perfumed aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, chamomile and citrus blossom are supported by richer undertones of candied mandarin, apricot, lychee and musk. Notes of thyme and lemon verbena lend an attractive herbaceousness. The palate is rich and luscious, with flavours of guava, stone fruit, ripe nashi pear and baked apple with cinnamon spice, balanced by bright, cleansing acidity. Botanical nuances of pine needle and juniper add complexity on the long, sumptuous finish.
Critics Rating: NICK STOCK JAMESSUCKLING.COM 2017 Vintage "A very bright, expressive wine with attractively fragrant aromas of lychees, roses and light pastry. There’s a citrus thread on the palate that drives orange-peel and lemon flavors with sapid, juicy, grapefruit-like citrus to close." 93 Points
