Tasting Notes

Prepare the senses for this one! Made from the Guwurztraminer grape grown in the Alsace region, this is a beautifully aromatic wine with tropical fruit and lychee aromas.

There's roses too, along with delicious spicy flavours.

Goes fantastically well with Thai fish curries.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Hamish Anderson said: "Gewurz (as it is often shortened to) is the most distinctive of grapes; its heady aromas are instantly recognisable. From one of its major areas of production, Alsace, this is a fine introduction to its pungent charms. Intense without being overbearing, this floral, lychee-laden glass makes a lovely summer aperitif."

Hamish Anderson - Daily Telegraph Magazine 03/08/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, David Williams said: "Gewurztraminer's sheer force of unbridled musky perfume is at its best with a little sugar; really dry styles miss out on its divisive flamboyance. This one has 14 grammes per litre and is exotic like really good turkish delight."

David Williams - Observer Food Monthly 22/09/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, Susy Atkins said: Classic gewurztraminer, delivering a scent of Turkish Delight, with juicy melons and peaches on the palate and an off-dry finish. One for an onion tart or quiche."

Susy Atkins - Stella, Sunday Telegraph 06/10/2013

Of the 2012 vintage, Olly Smith said: "As fragrant as a rose and fruity to boot- try this off-dry belter with your next fiery stir fry".

Regional info

The villages of Alsace lie in a narrow band at the foot of the Vosges Mountains. Low rainfall & long dry autumns allow Alsace to produce aromatic wines from similar grapes used in German wine.
