Gentle and inviting aromas of lychee and orange citrus. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel, the palate consists of aromas replays of lychee and orange. It's medium-sweet, but the lively acidity balances the sweetness very well. Balanced thoughout with a long finish. Delicious! Tasted Nov/2012.

Oh My! What an outstanding gewurztraminer. A touch of sweetness is detected amongst lovely floral notes. I wish I had picked up a few more. A great bargain at $17.95. Tasted February 2013.

Golden yellow in colour, and viscous when swirled in the glass. Very fragrant, with notes of spring flowers and spices. On the palate, intense notes of sweet apricots, oranges and spices. Quite a bit of residual sweetness, though not quite to late harvest status. To my taste, this calls to my Riesling as much as it does Gewurz. Whatever, an excellent white for near term drinking. Tasted Dec 2012.
