Elena Walch Kastelaz Gewürztraminer 2020
|Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige
The 2020 Gewurztraminer Vigna Kastelaz is a model of refinement, wafting up with notes of tropical melon, peach, sweet mint and black tea. Its textures are nearly oily in feel, yet neatly balanced by bright acids and a mix of tart nectarine, young mango and hint of white pepper. Arching florality and zesty citrus tones dominate the finale, which is nicely punctuated by a pleasant bump of inner sweetness. You can enjoy this young and savory Gewurztraminer today, but frankly, the best is yet to come.
A creamy white, backed by orange peel acidity and showing a well-spiced and aromatic range of baked melon, pink grapefruit sorbet and hints of fresh basil and lychee. Light- to medium-bodied and well-balanced, with a tang of salinity driving the finish. Drink now through 2025.
