“Wines of the Week”, Joelle Thomson, MiNDFOOD, 3 Dec, 2008

2008 Misha’s Vineyard The Gallery Gewurztraminer. Winemaker Olly Masters has allowed this wine’s aromatic purity (think rose petals and Turkish Delight) to express itself clearly in this luscious new gewürztraminer from New Zealand’s deep south.

I loved its aromatic marshmallow flavours and soft mouthfeel the first time I tried it. The second time it was an even better experience. While gewürztraminer remains under the radar for most wine drinkers (perhaps because really good versions are elusive), it shouldn’t be ignored when as good as this. Misha’s Vineyard is a newcomer in Central, owned by Misha Wilkinson. Watch this space for more.
