This was a really nice surprise. It is on the sweeter side, but contains it in a nice way. There are lovely citrus and floral notes and the flavour is quite concentrated. In a blind tasting flight of 6 Gewürztraminers, this one was the majority favourite as it paired well with a number of foods - particularly Asian cuisine. A bargain at less than $12.

Tasted blind at a Beefsteak & Burgundy Club event, September 2015.

It's always good to have a tasty gewürztraminer on-hand for spontaneous Asian feast nights. This totally fits the bill. On the nose, you get white peach, lychee and lemon, then it fills the palate with lychee, grapefruit, peach, lemon, honeysuckle and elderflower. A word to the wise: this wine is medium-dry, so the residual sugar may take some by surprise (and completely delight others). But it will do great things with medium-spicy dishes. Quite enjoyable just on its own as well, and at that price point I am totally sold!
