Natalie's Score: 91/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Vibrant, award-winning Gewurz with aromas of candied citrus, rosewater, lanolin, Turkish delight and spice box. Dry, but quite intense on the palate, with excellent aroma replays. Fairly vibrant acidity for balance from a generally low-acid variety. Medium bodied with a solid finish. My note: Beautifully made (and consumed!) Bursting with aromas of exotic rose petal, lychee and baking spices. I adore it! Perfect with curries, Asian dishes and a get-you-out-of-your-rut aperitif.

Gewurztraminer food pairings: mildly spiced Thai, Indian cuisine, curries, Asian dishes.

Russell McDowell rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Very nice nose of Lichee. Little acidic so it cuts through creamy sauces.
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The dry, but (not too) intense Gewruz, with it's light Lechee nose favours the Far East with a taste for East Indian and Thai, it likes it spicy.

It also plays nicely against a raunchy, “farmer’s daughter” cheese like Taleggio.

This rarely lasts in our home, clearly we have little self-control.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
