The weight and mouthfeel of this wine makes it extremely special. With aromas and
flavours of jasmine, ruby red grapefruit, grapefruit pith, lychee, elderflower, mandarin
orange and peach.
This Gewurztraminer ropes you in with that rich tropical first sip and then progresses
with floral notes and orchard fruit until you finish on a refreshing citrusy note. The
showcased balance between alcohol, acidity, sweetness and phenolics indicate that
this is a well represented wine.
I love releasing this wine on the first day of Spring because after the long winter
slumber we are all yearning for the sunshine and the smell of fresh flowers. If you
need to experience those bright feelings, then this is the wine for you!
The 2022 Vintage is probably one of the best Gewürztraminers that I have produced
to date. Although I have left behind some unfermented residual sugar, it was
intended and required to hold together the intense aromatics and flavours and to
balance the acidity and natural phenolics of this wine. Sometimes if the sugars are
too low and the alcohol is too high, it can amplify perfumy notes and bitter flavours.
I recommend that this wine be the star at the dinner table when enjoying fusion
dishes, food with spice, and foods that are rich and Alsatian in heritage (just like
Food Pairing Notes
The sweetness level of this wine allows you to really experiment with food and wine
pairings because of the complementary level of acidity. Foods that are rich, foods
with spice; think fusion or traditional Alsatian dishes.
Pair this with Münster cheese, smoked pork belly, sauerkraut and pork sausage,
roasted ham, quiche, halibut, chicken tangine, peking duck, panang chicken.
Drink now or hold for 3-6 years
