|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Oregon's Rogue Valley may be known for its Burgundian wines, but this is a fantastic capturing of varietal character. Gewurz in Oregon.
Pale yellow in colour. Not really that sweet, but extroverted and fruity; for sure.
Aromatics of kitchen spices, lychee, dried pineapple, orange, and rosewater.
The mouthfeel is quite rich. It has spent a decent amount of time on thrle grape skins for texture and aromatics.
This is a fantastic introduction to Gewurz and would pair great with Munster cheese on a flammekeueche.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Very pale straw in colour with aromas of green apple, peach, white grapefruit, roses. It is dry, light bodied with mouthwatering acidity with flavours of white grapefruit, peach and lychee. This will pair well with Thai food and most other Asian dishes. Tasted on May 6, 2018.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This pretty white from Oregon boasts aromas of lychee, rose petals and apricot. Medium body with a long, lychee finish. This wine would pair well with roast chicken and spicy, mango chutney. Tasted May 06, 2018.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of rose petals and stonefruit with honey, peach and lychee on the palate. Would pair with spicy Thai dishes. Tasted May 2018.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Wow! An intense bouquet of rose, lilac, buckwheat honey, ginger, and grapefruit zest. Tons of spicy ginger with a lingering touch of honey, minerality, but not sweet like you'd expect. A slight bitterness like grapefruit pith. I would pair this with something with a spicy dry-rub, like a shawarama-spiced or piri piri chicken. Definitely bold, for an adventurous taster who likes a variety in their wine experience.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
very nice lychee floral aromas. It says 'dry gerurz' but i find a bit sweet for my palate.
|Andrea Shapiro, Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
An engaging example of Gewurtztraminer from Oregan with a pretty floral, fruity bouquet. Featuring- stonefruit, apricot, lychee, mango and roses. Flavours reveal honey, apple, citrus and edible flowers. Medium acidity with a medium peach-driven body and finish with poached apple sweetness at the back. This is a match made in spice heaven for foods with a bit of a bite. Try with medium curries, spicy salsas and tacos. 88 points - tasted April 2018
|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:|
A unique dry Oregon Gewurz with tropical fruit and budding rose aromas. The flavours start out ripe and finish with a tangy and spicy mouthfeel. Standout notes include citrus zest, rosewater, wildflower honey, green pineapple and pickled white ginger. Enjoy with Asian Fusion dishes, sushi/sashimi or shellfish.

|From Rogue Valley, Oregon, Foris Vineyards 2016 Gewürztraminer is dry, floral, exotic in fact, with rose petals, pink grapefruit and fresh pair on the nose. With original planting dating back to 1974, Foris is a steward to some of the oldest Gewürztraminer vineyards in Oregon. Lovely, chilled on its own or pair with Asian fusion dishes. - Community Wine Reviews|
