FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
This is special wine - an opulent, exotic gewurz from the aromatic masters at Pegasus Bay. Spicy, tropical notes simply flow from this gorgeous wine, and the promise of the bouquet is perfectly expressed on the palate. Wonderful wine.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "It's wonderfully aromatic on the nose with mango, golden peach, cake spice and rich floral aromas, leading to a deliciously appealing palate that's powerfully concentrated and mouthfilling. Opulent and plush with a prolonged satisfying finish. Style: Off-dry. At its best: now to 2031."
The winery writes "On release the wine has a bright lemon tone. Exotic and perfumed, the nose is an enchanting patchwork of floral, tropical and spicy fragrances. Impressions of roses, honeysuckle, and wildflower cascade from the glass, flecked with pineapple, ginger, nutmeg and Turkish delight, along with a whisp of barrel flint. Due to the varietal intensity of Gewürz, some additional winemaking techniques have been employed to give the wine extra complexity. Skin contact and fermenting with solids provide increased structure and a subtle hint of struck match, while the oak aging and lees contact adds mouth feel. The palate is textural and weighty, framed with ripe phenolics and mellow acidity that balance the wine. A touch of bittersweet apricot kernel compliments its off dry style, adding length and prolonging the finish."
