Jane scored this wine: 92/100

Delicate and intensely fragrant, this is an exquisite example of Alsatian Gewurtztraminer. Medium-bodied and off-dry with lychee, rose petal and grapefruit aromas, mouthwatering acidity and notes of rose petals, lychee, pink grapefruit and nutmeg. Fine balance and very satisfying with a with a long rose and grapefruit rind flavour. I'll definitely buy this one again! Pair with turkey, Asian stirfries or mild curries. Tasted Oct. 2019

Taste the flavours of spring with this wine crafted from Finnish lingonberries and sweetened with honey. Beautiful bright coral colour and bursting with flavours of lingonberries, spruce tips , honey and spring flowers. Excellent acidity makes it versatile with foods such as sushi, smoked fish, hard cheeses or fruit desserts. #northernmagic Tasted June 2019
