Allan Scott Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2015 $19 ★★★½

Just in case you needed a refresher, it’s pronounced (gah-werts-tra-meener) and it translates to ‘spicy wine’ in German, it’s spiritual homeland.  Fans of Turkish Delight will want to do a little dance as soon as they sip this, because with its alluring rose petal, ginger and musky-sweet lychee-like aromas and tangy, spicy mid-palate punch – it’s a stunner. It’s dangerously easy to drink with spicy pork Thai larb salad heaving with chilli, lemongrass, ginger and coriander.
