Wine Review: This dessert wine was our top finisher in our first blind tasting flight of this category. It is pale yellow colored and opens with an iced sweet tea bouquet with a hint of apricot and honey. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, pleasantly sweet and viscous. The flavor profile is a tasty tangerine and honey blend with notes of apricot and a touch of golden raisin. The finish remains sweet and its flavors linger nicely. The panel suggested pairing this terrific dessert wine with fresh berry tart or Kerrigold Dubliner cheese and crackers. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: After the meager 2010 and 2011 vintages, where we bottled less wine than needed, it was a relief to have a decent Gewurz crop in 2012. This clean, peachy ambrosia will be delicious decades from now, so save some in your cellar as these age worthy, golden nectars are ideally suited for remembering and celebrating special occasions. Winner of thirteen Gold Medals.
