Wine Review: This almost clear colored Gewurztraminer is made is a style that really appeals for me. It opens with a very fragrant and inviting lychee bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced, flabby and viscous. The flavor profile is a very tasty ripe lychee with notes of ginger and gentle minerality. I also detected hints of lime and apricot mixed in as well. The finish is off-dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Gewurtz is very enjoyable on its own. With food, I would pair it with Thai rolls. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The leading jasmine and gardenia aromas wrap around you, giving that perfect aromatherapy bliss. With time in the glass, tangerine and spicy grapefruit chime in, underlain with crushed oyster shells. The mouth is full of energy yet light as silk in texture, with the earlier citrus notes buffered by lime and pear, finishing with pretty lily of the valley touches framing the perky grapefruit. Gorgeous young and wonderfully fresh in its youth, this is an amazing wine to cellar away for a bit as well. We love how the wine's brightness provides a perfect foil for curry dishes, as well as simple goat cheese snacks.
