Misha’s Vineyard ‘The Gallery’ Central Otago Gewurztraminer 2012

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 21-Apr-2013
Brilliant straw-yellow colour with pale lemon-green hues. The bouquet is sleek and refined with tightly concentrated and intense aromas of exotic white and red florals entwined with notes of dark herbs, spices, mineral and musk. Off-dry to taste, this is very elegant and tightly concentrated with delicately detailed fruit flavours of musky white florals, honeysuckle and mineral-infused herbs. The mouthfeel is refined and very smooth in texture, combining slippery acidity with subtle succulence. Some alcohol drive is present, but very harmonious with the palate flow. The flavours carry through to a sustained finish with exotic rose-like florals, spice and herb notes and steely minerals. This is a sleek and refined off-dry Gewurztraminer with refreshing florals and a smooth flowing palate. Match with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and cool-fermented with 30% by indigenous yeasts in seasoned French oak to 14.0% alc. and 11 g/L rs. 363 cases made. 19.0-/20 Apr 2013 RRP $31.95
