Bimbadgen Regions Gewurztraminer 2012

The Fruit for the Regions label comes from outside the Hunter Valley where the winery is based.  Orange in NSW is where this Gewurztraminer is grown.

Rose water and Turkish delight feature here as they do with Gewurztraminer. There is a florally kick, a pinch of cinnamon and a slap of pear skin too. A great start!

Plenty of texture adds interest on the palate. There is some warmth and the pear flavours strut their stuff. Length is good but the flavours aren't centre stage as I thought they might be.

A good food wine which will match any Asian cuisine well.

  1. "A slap of pair skin" eh? Sounds a touch kinky. How would you compare this to a Bungawarra or Ravens Croft?

  2. Pleased you liked the descriptor Stu.
    Three very different styles with their aromatics and texture I reckon.
    Bungawarra had more spice. Ravens Croft some attractive aromatics and filled the palate a little better.
    This and the Bungawarra are food wines in my opinion. I could drink the Ravens Croft on its own or as an aperitif.
    Think I have a Ravens Croft lying around. I might be tempted for a revisit.

  3. Agree the Ravens Croft is quite a pretty little thing. Look forward to seeing it written up then :)

  4. I was going to drink it for pleasure. Not any more by the looks :)
