Misha’s Vineyard The Gallery Gewurztraminer 2019, Central Otago

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Jun-2020
Bright, even, pale yellow colour. The nose is elegant and lush with classic varietal nuances of lychee, rose water, melded with ginger and aromatic spices with good concentration. Medium-light bodied, off-dry to taste, the palate is soft and elegant with lychee and lime, flows with rose water, Turkish delights entwined with ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg spices. The acidity is fresh with good energy, lifted the fruit element and balance. The mouthfeel is smooth with a honeyed texture, attractive and poise. There is an alcohol power, carries all the flavours effortlessly to a sustained finish. This is an elegant, off-dry Gwurztraimner with all its classic charm, along with balanced acidity and a smooth, honeyed mouthfeel. Match with Thai green curry and spicy Asia fare over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, whole bunch pressed. 100% fermented in older French oak barrels to 14% alc, 11 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts June 2020 RRP $32
