The wine exudes notes of rose petal, lychees, lime and grapefruit with the hallmark “soapy” character that Gewurztraminer exhibits. The palate mirrors the nose with additional notes of peach skin, lemon-lime soda grapefruit zest. The palate is off-dry, with the high acidity balancing the residual sugar nicely.
This wine makes a wonderful aperitif on its own or with hors d’oeuvres, or would work well with pan-seared white fish, roast turkey breast, or Vietnamese glass noodle salad.
