I've said it time and time again: Gewürztraminer and Kung Pao Chicken is one of the best wine and food pairings ever. The 2013 Cave de Turckheim Gewürztraminer ($28 SRP) possesses heady, floral and citrus aromas; a soft, textured mouthfeel; rich, ripe tropical and stone fruit flavors and a near-perfect integration of sweetness and acidity. Combined with the warm, spicy brown Kung Pao sauce, it's euphoric on the palate. (sample)

Melon nose, sweet and silky. Apples and pears. Good sweet wine with spicy food or cheese.

We like it - ! Second bottle may be better ;) Works as a before and after, excellent with anchovies and olives, waiting to find out about tarte au citron (crivens, how middle class...)

A perfumed & aromatic wine with rose water, lychee, peach & notes of honey. Tastes as it smells. Could work well with food.
