Bungawarra Gewürztraminer 2011

Like myself, this wine is a happy accident.  Made by analysis on numbers, the resultant wine had a little additional RS compared to the normal house style.  It works.  A perfect foil for a little heat and spice of a good Thai.

Poached pear, delicate florals, spice - white pepper - and a little musky note.  The RS brings out a little Turkish delight and rose water on the palate.  Texturally it feels soft, that extra sweetness - but I should say it's not sweet per se - adds a little fuller aspect to the wine, whilst there is the retention of some acid.

A little short on the finish, but sufficient quality on the palate to overlook that.  89 - Good

  1. Bu coincidence a friend pulled this wine out on Fyiday night. Well written up here Stu.
    The thing that struck me was the sweetness first up, then the wave of spice. This continued sip after sip.
    Something different and enjoyable.
