Babich Family Estates

Babich Family Estate Individual Vineyard Gewurztraminer 2014 Gimblett Gravels Hawkes Bay
Soft and gentle fragrances of Gewurztraminer unfurl slowly with aromas of white peach and nectarine, baked apple, gentle rose and soft tropical fruit nuances, white spices and a light stone/earth quality. On the palate - soft at first then the spice level increases dramatically helped along with some warming alcohol; just dry with a whisper of residual sugar; flavours fleshy white stone fruit, some floral and tropical layers, medium acidity,medium weight and lengthy finish. A lovely example of a variety that is well suited to food though equally  at home on its own by the glass.
