A very characteristic Alsatian gewurztraminer with just a kiss of sweetness. Fat and generous on the palate but with...

A pretty nicely Alsatian gewurz that isn't over the top aromatically. Floral and perfumed nose with slightly tropical fruit and gingery spice. The palate is oily, viscous, medium bodied and not chubby as there's enough balancing acidity.Very good to excellent length. A touch hot though. March 2016.

Straight to the point!
It's good but not great; though wait until 2018 or after to drink this wine.

Color is light gold. Nose also light hints of lychee and honey. Palate is clean balance with fruits lychee and little bit of melon. Finish is light. It's premature to drink right now.
Honestly it's not great on it's own. Pair it with chicken along with a kale and red hot pepper salad.

Tasted May 2016
