|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
It's hard to get closer to a classic Gewurz than this. Rose, lychee and tropical fruit are abundant in this open and aromatic wine. Rich yet bright, the palate is loaded with peach and pear that linger in the long, smooth finish.
Excellent Gewruz, certain to please fans of the grape. I'd have this anytime with Thai food or an Indian curry.

In looking at some previous reviews done in 2018 it's clear that this is a wine that is holding it's own and improving with age!
Ripe tropical fruit is abundant on the nose as well as some soft floral notes and a touch of honey. A beautiful golden colour with light to medium body. The acidity is well balanced with plenty of fruit; ripe pear, lychee and apricot being predominant. The aromas make you think this might be off-dry however I found it fairly dry with only some residual sugar coming through.
If you have a bottle of this still in your cellar I wouldn't rush to drink it just yet. Even better if you have two - one to try now and it would be interesting to taste again in another two\three years! @Reifwinery

This elegant, floral Gewurztraminer from Reif Estate, presents notes of lychee fruit, apricot and pear. The flavours match the aromas and leave you with a long, lychee fruit finish. Pair with apricot chutney and your favourite white meat. Tasted June 15, 2018.

Pale straw in colour with aromas of lychee, rose, peach and honey suckle. It is dry and light bodied with mouthwatering acidity. It has flavours of lychee, lemon and peach with a long fruit finish. This will pair nicely with Asian foods. Tasted on July 15, 2018.
