This off-dry Alsatian Gewurztraminer offers lovely notes of apricot preserves and honeydew and apple blossom. Some baking spice on the finish. Pair with cheeses and fruit-based desserts.

Gewurztraminer food pairings: light sea-food dishes, Asian dishes, pork tenderloin, mile curried chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

How can you can tell this is a Alsatian Gewurztraminer? This wine is pronounced on the nose with apricots, ripe melon, orange blossoms, citrus and cake spice. On the palate, the wine is generous with zesty acidity, fresh apricot, melon, lychee and rose petal. Excellent with strong cheeses like Munster or a pad Thai dish. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
