Bladen Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2016
‘CLASSIC’ IS THE right descriptor. Those heady fragrances that only superb gewurztraminer can offer are here in abundance – lychees, rose petal and “frangipani” (as noted by Cameron Douglas).
In the mouth this wine is voluptuous but fresh, focused yet delightfully decadent. It is medium in style with a creamy texture and terrific length – “a wine that speaks of its place”, noted John Belsham, who also felt a soft, smelly cheese would be an ideal match.Best Buys
