Natalie's Score: 90/100

A classic, refreshing white wine with lovely notes of lime, Asian pear, white peach and grapefruit. Perfect as an aperitif or an accompaniment to many dishes. This AC-designated wine is a field blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Sylvaner and Pinot Blanc grapes.

Food pairings: seared scallops, sushi, vegetables, herbed chicken, pork dishes.

Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A clear, pale straw yellow Alsatian blend, made from 5 "Noble" varietals: Gewurtztraminer, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Muscat and Sylvaner. With very delicate aromas of Anjou Pear, lemon/citrus, minerality and a slight hint of rose, this leads into a delightful palate of ripe pear, citrus, minerality and spicy Gewurtz lychee and rose petals. A crisp, mouth-watering, crystalline mouthfeel and a long citrus finish make this an irresistable choice. at $15.95, this is excellent value from a highly respected winery dating back to 1639. Stock up now for spring celebrations. LCBO#367284
The winemaking region of Alsace in France that borders Germany is renowned for blending several white grapes to create more complex white wines. This is one of the benchmark producers from the region. - Community Wine Reviews
