Wine Review: The brushed white gold colored Gewurztraminer from Gundlach Bundschu opens with a faint orange and lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced and easy going. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused gentle lychee with hints of tangerine, nutmeg, and walnut. The finish is dry and its mild flavors fade away nicely. The Gewurz is food friendly and would pair well with chicken lo-mein. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of allspice, jasmine and citrus burst from the glass. Luscious flavors of pink grapefruit, white nectarine, navel orange, lychee and starfruit are spiced with fresh ginger and coriander. The round, plush palate is accentuated with delicately woven mineral notes and crisp acidity leading into to a long, vibrant finish. Wonderfully bright and fresh in its youth, this classic, dry Gewuurztraminer will continue to develop complexity up to fifteen years from vintage.
