Misha’s Vineyard The Cadenza Late Harvest Gewurztraminer 2021, Central Otago

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 20-Sep-2021
Bright, straw-yellow with some depth, lighter on the rim. The bouquet is appealing and full, aromas of ripe peach, lychee and guava entwined with raw honey, rose petals and a hint of ginger. Medium-full bodied, concentrated aromas of guava, lychee melded with ripe peach, honey, subtle spice, and rose petals lends a lingering finish. The flavours are harmonious and well-proportioned; brilliantly balanced with sugar and acidity; lively acidity refreshes the palate with a hint of gingery spice. The low alcohol content makes it effortlessly approachable. Match with chicken liver parfait and panna cotta over the next 5+ years. Handpicked late-harvested fruit with <5% botrytis, gently crushed, on skins for 2 days, cool-fermented in tank to 9.5% alc, 131g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $35
