TINHORN CREEK TINHORN CREEK - Gewürztraminer - 2016

TINHORN CREEK Gewürztraminer 2016

See the wine detail page

91 Points

Delightful, perfumed, potent. Expect a delightfully classic Gewurztraminer character - Tinhorn's version is consistently expressive and perfumed.  Notes of rose oil and lychee, orange blossom water and exotic spices, mango and freshly peeled ginger demand attention. Equally decadent on the palate; it is potent and concentrated, reminiscent of its Alsatian counterparts. Excellent balance and a lengthy zesty finish. Pair with holiday turkey, exotic fare, dishes with a bit of chili pepper heat or warm Munster cheese.

About Wine Scores

What is a wine score and how do wine reviewers (I don’t refer to myself as a wine critic, I review wine, I don't criticize it) decide on that score?
A wine score is a numerical rating wine reviewers give to a wine based on a series of elements. Every wine reviewer (or wine critic) has their own method of getting to a conclusive number even if they use similar guidelines to one another.
