Charcoal Gully ‘Sallys Pinch’ Central Otago Gewurztraminer 2013

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 13-Apr-2017
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, pale on the rim. The nose is elegant and finely concentrated with a soft core of exotic yellow stonefruits, rose-petals, lychees and subtle notes of root ginger, unveiling musk and steely minerals. The nose is now beginning to show signs of savoury bottle development. Off-dry to taste, the palate has good body and presence, with flavours of rose-petals, savoury yellow stonefruits, lychees and root ginger. Some secondary development is appearing. The wine flows smoothly along a fine line, driven by a little alcohol power, and acidity soft lends roundness to the mouthfeel. The wine carries to a lightly nuanced finish. This is a rounded, off-dry Gewurztraminer with good body and presence, now beginning to show some savoury detail to the rose-petal, lychee and root ginger flavours. Hand-picked fruit given 24 hours skin contact and fermented in tank to 14.4% alc. and 6.2 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Apr 2017 RRP $21.00
