Vintages Wine Panel: A lively Gewurz that offers notes of rose petals, lychee and grapefruit. Off-dry and very fresh on the palate, with supportive acidity and grapefruit flavours. This textbook Gewurztraminer can seamlessly bookend an evening, as it can serve as a delightful aperitif. My note: To die-for Gewurztraminer with a mouth-coating texture and exotic richness and flavours. Gorgeous with dishes that have a little sweet or spice. Full-bodied.

Gewurztraminer food pairings: foie gras, dessert featuring fresh fruits.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
