91pts James Suckling

Attractively fused florals and white peaches with lychees and apricots. The palate has a very fleshy feel with rich and juicy texture and smooth peaches and apples. Lightly sweet, full-ish finish.

91pts Vinous

Pale yellow-gold. Fresh, lively aromas and flavors of smoky duck sausage, cinnamon, rose petal and grapefruit. Very long, rich and dense Gewürz that closes pleasantly lifted and spicy. I like how light on its feet this is, despite its richness. Improves greatly with a little aeration, so make sure you leave it in the glass for about five minutes before you start drinking, or decant ahead. (ID)

91pts Wine Spectator

Dry and minerally, this creamy white is light- to medium-bodied, with a firm backbone of acidity framing flavors of creamed apricot, Meyer lemon, oyster shell and an intriguing aromatic thread of garam masala that winds through to the tangy finish. (AN) 

Winemaker Notes

The fruitiest and the spiciest of the varietals – a unique wine. Its dry personality makes it ideal as an aperitif and it pairs extremely well with specialty cuisine with pronounced flavors. Gewurztraminer is a fine accompaniment for fish or seasoned meats, spicy and exotic dishes, soft cheeses (such as the famous Munster), and a plethora of desserts.
