I can’t get past the Jean Naté smell.

Outstanding dry style American Gewurz, especially for the $. Medium gold with pink reflections and medium plus viscosity. Mega aroma bomb, smells of leechie, sweet ruby red grapefruit, potpourri and lemon verbena. On the palate, this wine tastes like perfume smells: potpourri, lemon zest, a mouth coating oiliness followed by crisp acidity. finish is long, you feel like your exhaling potpourri for a minute or so after. Went profoundly well with sage butternut and chanterelle pizza. definitely a sipper. Drink with water on side.

This is a find plus a considerable bargain. Fruit flavor nose it has them all. Nice for summer.

Perfect with Thai food on a Tuesday at home. Comfort food for a recovering guy

Aromatic nose leads to off-dry wine on the palate. On the simpler side.

A dry-style Gewurz with a fruit-forward, floral, fragrant nose. Drier on the palate. Silky mouthfeel with the floral notes carrying through. -- Wineshout.com

Very fragrant. Hints of ginger, light acidity. Dry finish.
