A lovely medium-bodied gewurztraminer with delicate notes of white field flowers, peach and a faint whiff of lychee. Not spicy. Terrific aperitif! Perfect for mild to medium curries and spices.

Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Outstanding quality; especially for value. It nails typical Gewurz fruit and keeps the spice subdued and only a bit noticeable on the nose. It is not particularly sweet, but may have a residual sugar just above dry (15 grams per litre?).
Pale colour, but a nice lemon yellow to the core.
Gewurz has a nice texture to it and you can see that foreshadowed with the concentration in the glass.
Aromas of ginger, almond, lychee, white pear, pitayha, orange blossom, and a touch of skin phenolics.
The flavours are delicious. The palate is as distinct as the aromas. Satisfying mouthfeel, with more orange, lychee, and pear.
This was paired with chili encrusted tuna. Delicious!
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Full-bodied and aromatic- as one would expect from a cold climate Gewurz. Very pretty golden yellow in the glass. Lychee, apples, peaches, rose petals with a notable spicy finish. Although only 7g/l residual sugar, comes across as off dry - perfect for those who like some sweetness, yet enough acidity to provide a crisp, mouthwatering experience. Pair with cheese and nuts as a last course to the meal. Tasted: Sept 2018
