It’s no wonder Gewurztraminer is one of the four noble grape varieties in Alsace, France. 👏👏👏 It’s uniquely expressive, perfumed, rich, and oily with youthful and pronounced aromas 👃 of lychee, açaí, papaya, mango, pineapple, also sweet spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and rose, stargazer lily, elderflower, and wet stone. 🤩🤩🤩
👁 This wine is deep gold. 👄 It’s dry with a modicum of residual sugar. It has medium acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, and pronounced flavors, consistent with the nose, including notes of lychee, açaí, papaya, mango, pineapple, also sweet spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and rose, stargazer lily, elderflower, and wet stone. The finish is medium(+).
We’ve paired this wine with grilled vegan brats and roasted zucchini.

Cherry liqueur, mushroom/meat secondary, comes together nicely with acidity driving it through. Not old by any means but would be even more enjoyable a year or two earlier in age — a day ago
Fine everyday wine. Full bodied, only a little fruity. — 9 days ago
Quite aromatic & very fresh. Airy & light yet with beautiful ripe red & black fruit and some warm stones.
Very complete, harmonious & elegant on the palate - seamless with dusty ultra fine tannins and an elegant long finish.
This is drinking beautifully right now!
