Three Miners Chinaman Stone Gewurztraminer 2021, Central Otago

Gewurztraminer from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 26-Oct-2021
Bright, pale yellow with a green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full, filled the glass with rose petal nuance, ginger underlying lychee and citrus. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, citrus and its pith leads the palate, unfolding lychee, ginger powder and rich floral of roses. The wine has richness and concentration, enlivened by gingery spice and lean acid focus. The mouthfeel possesses fine-textured phenolic flow with underlying alcohol power, ginger spice and deep floral expression. This is a dry and elegant Gewurztraminer with profound rose petal, ginger aromatics adorned by delicate lychee and lime on a focused palate with power and grace. Match with chicken & herb salad with Nuoc Cham and spring rolls over the next 3-4 years. Fruit was sourced from Three Miners Vineyard, near Alexandra, handpicked, whole bunch pressed to neutral barrels for wild-fermentation and a portion in tank inoculated with cultured yeast, 14% alc. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2021 RRP $38
