Description

Tasting Note
“Gewurz” means spice, in line with the character of this variety. Gewurztraminer expresses strong fruit flavours, like pineapple or litchi, and in most cases, notes of rose petal. The spices generally evoke nutmeg or white pepper. Bright, limpid golden yellow colour. With its very intense nose, this Gewurztraminer develops typical aromas such as spices, sultanas. A couple of floral notes (rose petal) offer freshness and refined characteristics. At once strong and thirst quenching on the palate. Well-balanced and ample matter. Very expressive, this wine evokes spices with a couple of notes of honey. It offers good aromatic persistence and excellent freshness on the palate. This wine is a typical example of the grape variety.
