Clean, simple, sweet fermentation-driven aromas with some botrytis/late harvest character. The palate is full,...

I thought this was an excellent example of an Alsacian Gewurtraminer though still a bit green and could use another year or so to develop. A great sipper. Nice long finish.

Gewurztraminer is not my "go to" wine but this one could have me changing my mind.

Light yellow colour in the glass. Aromas of white flowers and classic lychee.

On the palate this wine dry, medium to full bodied and offers terrific balance. Lycee, apricot and lime notes. Lovely long finish.
