Wine Review: The Villa Wolf wines are some of the better values. Across the board, the wines are varietally correct and are excellent representations of the region and style. The Villa Wolf Gewurztraminer balances roundness and sweet depth with a pungent nose and plenty of backbone. The nose is a bouquet of wildflowers, quince, and candied orange zest. The palate screams with oranges, star anise, and chamomile. The finish has some apricot and lychee fruit that are constrained by some fresh acid. This would pair well with a medley of dishes, but General Tso's chicken is what currently comes to mind. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Villa Wolf Gewürztraminer is clean, fruity and wonderfully light on its feet. It shows off the exotic aromatic charm of the variety without becoming heavy or ponderous. Harvested at optimal ripeness, the wine has a deliciously juicy texture and a delightfully delicate aroma of spice and fresh roses. It is very refreshing to drink on its own and makes a perfect accompaniment to spicy cuisines and pungent cheeses, such as Munster, a classic pairing.
