Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Gewurztraminer opens with a lychee bouquet with a hint of peach. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused peach with notes of lychee and white pepper. The finish is mostly-dry and its flavors linger slightly. I would pair this wine with chicken lo-mein. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Floral, spicy aromas of lychee nuts, rose petals, clove-like spice and apricot among others. On the palate, the wine shows an oily texture typical of dry Alsatian Gewurztraminers. The concentrated fruit flavors of delicate, ripe pear plus mild spice are balanced by supple acidity. The wonderful, spicy finish makes it a great match for Asian, spicy dishes or with aged and cured, smoked meats.
