Osawa Wines

Flying Sheep Single Estate Vineyard Gewurztraminer Hawke's Bay 2011 14.5%
N: Distinctive, fragrant, floral and pretty: A bouquet that reminds me of apple strudel, nougat, peach, pungent rose and spice. All the hallmarks of Gewurz' and sound wine making. 

P: Dry, warm, spicy and varietal. The medium+ acidity tempers the fruit package of citrus, apple, peach and then nougat. Generous in flavor and length and displays some complexity. A little warm (14.5%) for some - so perhaps some creative food and wine pairing is suggested. Medium+ acid, length and finish - overall pretty good!
3.5 Stars
