Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Gewurtz is heavenly. But there is a key to unleashing its magic. The key is temperature. Serving this wine slightly cool unleashes unbelievable results and flavors. Most people will over chill this wine and miss its outstanding potential. Don’t do it! When at this magical point this wine opens with a heavenly lychee like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, is well balanced, and slightly viscous. There is nicely integrated acidity with delicious lychee and lime flavors. There is a note of spice on the back palate as well. The finish is dry, nicely extended, & refreshing. This wine might even rival the 2000 which I considered the gold standard until today. You should seek this gem out. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: It's deliciously crisp with citrus, tropical fruit and spice flavors enhanced with a little yeastiness.
