Heady and textured
Logan Weemala Gewürztraminer 2016, Orange NSW, AUD $20
One of Australia’s most expressive and consistently impressive gewürztraminers. The nose is heady and spirited with baked apple, pear and spice. The palate presents similar characters and is weighty and full. Compared with other vintages, this is a generous wine, both in flavour, weight and texture. There is a touch of residual sugar nicely woven in. It represents remarkable value at $20.
Rather than pairing with spicy food, I would serve alongside something hearty and flavoursome.
