Ostler Gewurztraminer 2020, Waitaki Valley

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 12-Aug-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a slight green hue, lighter edged. This wine has an intense and full bouquet, exuberant aromas of lychee, rambutan entwined with rose water, old ginger roots and an amalgam of florals. Medium-full bodied, off-dry to taste, candied ginger, interweave lychee, rambutan and melon, unfolding rose water and florals. The fruit has excellent flavours and concentration; sugar sweetness contributes to a rounded mouthfeel, in harmony with balanced acidity, linger to a gingery, moreish finish. This intensely flavoured Gewurztraminer shines with varietal character harmoniously. Match with salt & pepper squid and Sichuan popcorn chicken over the next 5-7 years. Handpicked, foot stomped in the vineyard for skin contacts, then pressed to stainless steel tank, settled for 2 days, then racked. Fermentation to 14.5% alc, 8.6 g/l RS. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $27
