Fruity smell, little bubbly, less bitter after taste, also pear? Sweet but not overly. Liked this even better than the Castello one. — 7 days ago
Pale golden color, excellent clarity. Honeysuckle note in nose. Spice, tart litchi, and pineapple flavors with a hint of apricot, mango and kumquat. Citric-malic finish with spicy barrel wood, almost brassy or alt-beer like in its acid and flavor character. Some skin astringency. Slightly bitter lactic aftertaste. Good crispness, lower alcohol but flavorful. I’m not sure about the balance in the flavor profile here, but it is Alsatian in style, subtle in its fruit expression and blessedly dry. — 12 days ago
Delicious honeydew, dried apricots with honey, white honeysuckle flower flavors and aromas. A little on the sweeter side thanks to the gewurtztraminer, none of the acidity you would expect from a Riesling in the area. Would have gone very well with cheese but instead I split it with a friend and enjoyed it over conversation. As it got some air it kind of got an oily note to it which was interesting but not altogether unpleasant. — 12 days ago
Outstanding rich traminer. Rich in taste, rather sweet. Nice buquet. Medium lasting taste. Good value for money. — 5 days ago
Fruit forward wine from Stedt Wines. Honeysuckle, peach, mango. Hint of grapefruit. Lychee. Melon. Aromas of spice and rose. Not overtly sweet and it’s well balanced. Well done. Delicious. Don’t listen to the very low and undeserved rating here by the group is a low 8 - this wine is great. Deserves every bit of the 9.0 pro rating listed. — 15 days ago
2017 Skin Ferment Gewürztraminer from small-batch Ontario winery Trail Estate.
Rich (but only 11.6%), aromatic, golden hue, not your average gewurtz!
Hand-harvested, wild-fermentation on skins for 16 days. — 6 days ago
Good full yellow-straw. Ripe aromas of stone fruits, jasmine, flint and honey are enlivened by a strong note of spices. Enters broad and spicy, then more linear and taut, the ripe citrus and peach flavors perked up by harmonious, ripe acidity. Typical wine from granite-dominated soil, featuring a spicy, broad entry, then a more narrow, high-acid middle and finish; the Holder’s signature ripe yellow fruit is also evident on the long, suave finish.
