Charcoal Gully ‘Sallys Pinch’ Central Otago Gewurztraminer 2014

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 13-Apr-2017
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues, very light on the edge. This has a very fine, soft and elegant nose with delicate and pure aromas of rose-petal and exotic florals, a little muskiness and subtle herb and mineral notes. The aromatics are detailed and form a good core. Off-dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has fragrant flavours of exotic rose-petal, and white and yellow florals, entwined with musk and hints of honey, along with refreshing mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is soft-textured and gently rich, showing a degree of unctuousness, with integrated, fresh acidity. The wine flows along a smooth, seamless line with some alcohol drive, leading to a soft, lingering finish of rose-petals and musk. This is a soft and gently rich and unctuous off-dry Gewurztraminer with delicate exotic florals and a smooth, seamless palate, Match with Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese fare over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit given 24 hours skin contact and fermented in tank to 14.1% alc. and 8 g/L RS. 18.0-20 Apr 2017 RRP $21.00
