Topper's Mountain Barrel Aged Gewürtztraminer 2015


Gewürtztraminer has little profile in Australia, but Topper's Mountain in New England have produced not one, but two styles in the 2015 vintage.  They are both good too.  The "barrel fermented" gewürtz reviewed here presents with lychee, candy and smoke at the edges.  The palate is dry, with a full body and good length.  There's a mineral edge too.  A really rather good wine and exactly like gewürtz should be. (Region: New England, New South Wales Rating: Good to Very Good, Drink: now)
