Intensely floral and spicy notes, but without quite the pungent bite of Gewurztraminer. Like a lighter weight, spicy Alsatian Riesling, but this one is utterly bone dry in the mouth, giving that pleasant palate shock that Gewurz does. Really interesting wine with nicely defined, spicy flavors of grapefruit, apricot, and tropical fruits. Good to sip or to drink with spicy foods. Sensational bargain, too. - HK 2013-05-25
