Opulent, richly weighted sweet wine that fills your mouth the concentrated spicy flavours of Gewurztraminer. A showstopper.
One-off is the vehicle for celebrated winemaker Rod McDonald to make small parcels of interesting high quality wines. It's been a resounding success and has developed a fanatical fan base. The only catch is that every release is a One Off. When it's gone, it's gone. There'll never be another.
Raymond Chan writes "Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is well-concentrated with a deeply packed, but rounded core of ripe exotic tropical fruits, honey, marmalade, musk and rose-petals. The mouthfeel opulent and unctuous with soft acidity enhancing the richness and smoothness of the palate. This is a rich and opulent botrytised Gewurztraminer with a deep, rounded core of exotic tropical fruits, honey and musk."
