Reviews and Ratings

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

Lovely nose of rose petals, lychee and a hint of ginger. The palate repeats with stronger ginger for a gorgeous blend. Dry, well-balanced, with lingering spicy finish. Enjoy with East Indian curry or roast turkey.
Tasted April 2016
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Priya: This is a perfect example of a typical, German style gewürztraminer. It's super fruity with lychee (of course) and quite sweet. Would be great with my mom's spicy Indian cooking! 89pts

Alex: A rich, sappy, sultry style that is just oozing with flavor. Concentrated aroma of ataulfo mango, lychee, rose and candied ginger, with a thick palate balanced by a perky effervescence. Sweet for sure, but well balanced and delicious, and perfect for your French fruit tart! 89pts
