CARMEN GEWURZTRAMINER - 2007
Curico Valley, Chile. 87% Gewurztraminer, 13% Semillon. 13.5% alcohol.
Greenish yellow color with lychee and floral notes on the nose. Good minerality, honeysuckle and honey on the finish. Crisp, refreshing and good acidity.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
A nice wine to compliment light summer meals. There's enough acidity to balance the fruit. Enjoyable with some sweetness upfront but the wine finishes dry and crisp. If it wasn't for some heat on the back-end I think I would have scored this a tad higher. Suggested retail is around $10.
