Appearance: Young, lively colour, moderately intense, bright lemon yellow with pistachio green hints, a flash of silver, delicately velvety and silky in appearance.
Aroma: Attractive, agreeable bouquet, not too forward, aromatic, perfumed, nicely elegant and refined.
Mainly floral aromas of fresh rose, jasmine, reseda, lily, freesia, primrose, with passion fruit, mango and pear.
Mouth Feel: The mouth is filled with aromas that are generous, yet still soft and suave to flatter and charm the palate. It is almost dry, with an elegant finish that is crisp and refreshing.
Food Pairing: A wine to enjoy now while it is young and its varietal qualities are clearly defined. Ideal as an aperitif, or at any time, to share an agreeable moment with friends. Serve with cheese, munster, auvergne blue, stilton, aged goat's cheese, also with lightly spiced, tasty dishes, Chinese, Moroccan, Indian, and with fruit based cakes and desserts.
Wine EnthusiastHints of rosewater and Turkish Delight waft from the glass. More toned down, the palate shines with citric freshness. There is quite a bit of warmth that seems to intensify the floral peach notes even more. It's very aromatic and varietally true, with a tropical finish of passion fruit.
Wine SpectatorHints of beeswax and orange blossom herald this dry and balanced Gewürztraminer. A smoky underpinning accents the pink grapefruit granita and white pepper notes. Drink now through 2020. 3,500 cases made.
