Wine Review: This very fragrant Gewurztraminer opens with an apricot bouquet with a hint of orange and ginger. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe lychee with notes of ginger, Bosc pear and mild minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Gewurtztraminer is food friendly and would pair well with cashew chicken. 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.
