Charcoal Gully ‘Sallys Pinch’ Central Otago Gewurztraminer 2009

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 15-Mar-2011
Very pale straw yellow colour, this has a very delicate, fine nose, subtle in its expression of roses and Turkish Delight, combined with cool herb and mineral undertones. There is a savoury vinosity that comes through. Off-dry on palate, this is light and elegant, just ripe, the florals quite delicate, but enhanced by the gentle sweetness. This has typical varietal soapy, near-oily textures and a little alcohol heat intrudes, but the wine finishes with some attractive sweetness. Fruit from a 9 ha site in the Pisa sub-region, ‘Sallys Pinch' being an imposing rock face near the summit of MtPisa. Wines made at VinPro. Drink with Cantonese cuisine over the next 2-3 years. 16.0+/20 Feb 2011 RRP $20.00  www.charcoalgully.co.nz
