2015 Ovum "Love Me or Leave Me" Gewurztraminer (Serpentine Clay)
9/29 harvest. 12.8%, 7g/L RS.
Restrained smoky, salty, raw sugar cane, burnt orange peel, wet stone. Highly textured and clean, the RS doesn't seem apparent - as refined as GW comes.
"The bouquet wafts from the glass in lovely and utterly classic blend of lychee nut, rosewater, a touch of spices meats, a nice dollop of soil and a touch
of white flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with an excellent core of fruit, bright acids, lovely focus and grip and a very long, still quite primary finish. The seven grams of residual sugar simply buffer the acidity here seamlessly and the overall impression is of a bone dry wine. This reminds me a lot of a top
young vintage of Trimbach Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre, which is about as high praise as I can offer for young gewürztraminer! Excellent juice. 2016-2030+." -John Gilman, A View from the Cellar, Issue #65
