A blend of 54% Gewurztraminer and 45% Riesling with a small dosage of 1% Riesling icewine. This is a brilliant wine with classic aromas of rose petal, lychee and lime zest. It's zippy and refreshing yet deeply flavoured. Lovely!

Reviews and Ratings

A finely crafted blend expressing true Gewurztraminer characters of white grapefruit, a touch of lavender with delicate bubble gum nuances, coupled with apricot and passionfruit traits. The palate explodes with additional flavors of lemon rind, pineapple and a desirable minerality. With a wonderful richness brought about by the Riesling Icewine dosage, which balances the racy acidity, this wine is sure to please any drinker. Enclosed under screw-cap to ensure freshness and crispness.

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.
