Classic Gewurztraminer with concentrated notes of lychee, rose petal and spice box. Full-bodied and highly aromatic.

The Malivoire smelled of peaches and soap - in a good way and quite interesting at that; fuller in the mouth while still displaying the typical Gewurztraminer aroma and flavours profile; a bigger wine than most examples of the variety though a little flat on the mid-palate. On the whole, a nice wine with just a touch of effervescence. (northof9finewine, Feb 2011)
