5 STARS - Raymond Chan, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, Oct 2017
“Bright, light straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. This has a very fine, elegantly concentrated and intense nose with aromas of rose-petals and exotic florals, Turkish Delight and notes of lychees. The aromatics show a degree of opulence, and are classical and beautifully refined in expression. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and deep, densely packed, rounded heart with a soft unctuousness. The flavours of rose-petals, florals and Turkish Delight are entwined with nuances of spice and lychees. The mouthfeel has underlying power, with soft acidity, and the wine carries seamlessly to a long, deep, lingering finish. This is a rich, unctuous, deep-fruited dry Gewurztraminer with rose-petal, Turkish Delight and spice flavours. Match with Asian and Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4 years.”
4 STARS - Peter Saunders, Independent Author & Journalist, Oct 2017
“Quite a bracing style this vintage, crisp, fresh and yet mouth-filling. I think this is one of the best in the Hunter’s Sauvignon line-up over the past few years. Loads of fruit, true to variety and region, a stylish, very enjoyable style to enjoy over the next 2-3 years at least.”
