Fantastic QPR at $25, this Alsace Grand Cru Gewürztraminer dazzles demurely with its ripe yellow peach and lychee aromas, white flowers, and lovely texture, just a hint of phenolic bitterness and interesting honey/lanolin (botrytis?). The 14%ABV and moderate RS are well integrated.

Really impressed with this. Clearly white, but almost as heavy as some light reds with the skin contact in a good way. The right amount of sweetness and acid. — 11 days ago
Super nice Gewürz; pumpfakes sweetness then goes to spice and minerality. All in all delish and a great fall / winter choice. — 10 days ago
An off-dry wine with some acidity, rose and lots lychee aromas and flavors, a little apple on the nose as well with a medium finish balanced by the acid and a nice fruit sweetness. A nice Gewürztraminer from Sonoma County! — 5 days ago
Warm vintage but wine is fairly focused - minerals and lime with a little peach. — 4 days ago

12 October 2018; Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyards tasting.
Nose of incredible Gardenia flowers, light spices.
Palate has spicy white pepper, dilute honey, long finish.
A great bottle, this varietal thrives in the FLX region, most notably in the HJW vineyards! — a month ago
