elenawalch_gewurzMy Tasting Notes –

Nose: rose, apple peel, honey, apricot

Taste: rose petal, lychee, graphite, honey

Mouthfeel: viscous and spicy with enough acidity to provide some structure

Finish: long, dry with hints of honey and rose

Great “Gewurtz”, very nice and rich but a great amount of acidity for much needed structure to back up the viscosity felt on the palate. Classic flavors and aromas of rose, lychee and honey, it is everything a good Gewürztraminer should be, and at $19 it isn’t a bad price. Think about pairing this with some Indian food, it would work great!
