Misha’s Vineyard ‘The Gallery’ Central Otago Gewurztraminer 2013

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 13-Mar-2014
For the first time, this has been fully fermented in seasoned oak, 40% by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc. and 12 g/L RS. Brilliant, pale straw colour with slight green hues, pale on rim. The nose is restrained and gently aromatic with an amalgam of softly exotic rose-petal florals and lychee fruit entwined with delicate flinty, minerally barrel influence and earthy-smoky indigenous yeast layers. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, gentle and subtly mouthfilling flavours of rose-petal and exotic floral fruits are melded with gentle layers of flinty and mineral from the indigenous yeast and barrel work. Some lusciousness and honied elements add to the sweetness and provides some richness. The fruit is underlined by fine textures and good acid linearity and is carried to a lingering finish with honey and spice notes. This is a restrained and finely textured off-dry Gewurztraminer with some sweet nuances. Match with fine Chinese cuisine over the next 4 years. 310 cases made. 18.0+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $31.95
