Dry River Lovat Vineyard Gewurtztraminer 2008

Okay - short story: It's moi birthday, well tomorrow really.  55 years on planet Earth so far.

The wine - boutique and very hard to find wines from Dry River are famous in NZ.  As a pre-dinner drink I decided to crack this one from the 2008 vintage.
Colour - clear yellow gold.
Aromas - honey, clove, lime, lychee fruit.
Palate - off-dry, teetering on sweet, with luscious unctuous texture and flavours of ginger in syrup, lychee, honey, clove and lime.  Amazing length of palate.
Verdict - More please.
