So good I went back for another bottle! Hope to see more of this grower soon at the LCBO. Sweet full bold flavors. Great lychee and fruits tease and deliver a full range of sweet taste.

Classical and not over commercialized: lychee fruit, a touch herbal, plus floral aromas are what identify Gewurtz, and this example has them all. Citrus, peach, and a touch of spice on the generous off-dry palate completes the package nicely. The ideal food pairing for this wine is with Asian – anyone know of a good BYOB Thai house? Tasted Mar 2012.
