Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lovely example of aromatic Gewurtztraminer, with delicate white fruit, slight spice and flavour of rose petals throughout and delicious rose flavour on long finish. Enjoy with turkey, curries, Vietnamese cuisine or chilled as an aperitif.
Tasted March 2019
From the Alsace wine region, Baron De Hoen 2017 Reserve Gewurztraminer is an aromatic with white florals, fresh apple, pear aromas and flinty notes; off-dry, medium-bodied with lychee, honeyed-pear and ripe melon flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food, pair it with a mild cauliflower and green curry or Asian-style pork ribs. - Community Wine Reviews
