Cave Spring is known for excellent quality price ratio for their Rielsing's, but they can add their 2013 Gewurz to that great value category as well. Spot on Gewurz typicity with fairly intense aromatics of lychee, spice, ginger, rose and some minerality. What really elevates this for me is the somewhat higher than typical acidity for Gewurz, providing balance and offsetting what would otherwise be an oily mouthfeel. There's creaminess for sure, but nothing cloying. Excellent length and nicely food friendly - bring on the Thai or Sechwan/Hunan cuisine. Oct. 2016.

Highly aromatic nose is effervescent with inviting notes of lychee, mineral citrus and roses. This is fleshy and quite dense on the medium-bodied palate, with pleasingly off-dry aroma replays. It has balanced acids and the finish is long dry. Tasted July/2016.
