Misha’s Vineyard The Gallery Gewurztraminer 2020, Central Otago

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 20-Sep-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow colour, slightly lighter on the rim. The bouquet has elegance and depth, filled the glass with aromas of lychees, guava, interweave ginger powder and exotic flowers. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, a spicy palate assembled of lychees, guava and a hint of pineapple, entwined with exotic florals, rose petals, ginger and Sichuan pepper. The wine is balanced and vibrant with a juicy acid line, haul along the palate with spices on a smooth mouthfeel, contributed by residual sugar and fruit concentration. This vibrant Gewurztraminer possesses exotic tropical fruit and florals and shines with lively acidity on a smooth and spicy palate. Match with firecracker chicken and fish curry over the next 4-5 years. Whole bunch pressed, fermented in older French oak barrels, 50% wild yeast. 14% alc, 10g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $35
