Ruru Gewurztraminer 2020, Central Otago

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 21-Sep-2021
Bright, pale straw-yellow, lighter on edge. The nose is gentle and coy, spicy lifting melded with lychee, melon, kumquat and rose petals. Medium-bodied, off-dry to taste, the palate is harmonious, showing nuances of lychee, melon, kumquat, unfolding rose petals and ginger spice overlay. The fruit flavour has a pure expression, enriched by rose fragrance and ginger. Balanced acidity and sugar provide weight on the palate and a lively flow. This is a natural beauty of Gewurztraminer with the purity of fruit and varietal characters with balanced sweetness and acid. Match with spicy Asian fare over the next 2-4 years. Destemmed, crushed and left on skins for 2 hours. 14% alc, 10g/l RS. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $27
