    Winemaker's Notes:

    Fragrant aromas of orange blossom and allspice burst from the glass followed by luscious flavors of lychee, clementine, Asian pear, and guava spiced with fresh ginger and coriander. The round, plush palate is accentuated with delicately woven mineral notes and crisp acidity leading into to a long, vibrant finish. Wonderfully bright and fresh in its youth, this classic, dry Gewurztraminer will continue to develop complexity up to fifteen years from vintage.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A wonderful Gewürztraminer, from a winery that’s worked with it for a long time and has a good track record. It’s crisp in acidity and exotically complex, with citrus and tropical fruit, ripe peach and honeysuckle flavors. That famous Gewürztramimer spiciness is perfect.

    Sporting very clear themes of allspice and clove in the nose with suggestions of ripe apples and a hint of spiced orange as well, this relatively mouthfilling Gewurz stays in step on the palate with ample, nicely filled flavors. While it flirts with a bit of unnecessary heat at the finish, it never wavers from its varietal course, and, while we would not choose it as a picnicky cooler, it has the richness to stand up to flavorful fare such as a classic Alsatian Choucroute Garnie.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this wine. It was just dry enough to enjoy with my fish dish or pork. It had no elements of bitterness.
