Nose of elderflower, ripe apricot and canned peaches. Palate is off balance, fruit is syrupy and alcohol is way too prominent. Like drinking fruity hand sanitizer.

Amazing on every front. Spectacular balance and expression. Definitely in my top 3 white wines of this year.

Very light gold in the glass with a nose of rose petals, strawberries, pears, and oranges. I don’t drink very many Whites and almost never Gewurtztraminer, so I’m definitely no expert here but I’m digging this California/Alsace style. Nice notes of grapefruit and lemons on the palate, being joined by herbs and bright acidity. I wanted just a touch more spice on the palate and especially the finish but this more than gets the job done.

Clear straw color, floral, orange blossom, underripe apricot, canned peach syrup. Pretty good, needs to have some spicy dish to take the sweetness off.
