Expert Reviews

92 Points | International Wine Cellar , September 2012

(12.9% alcohol; 69 g/l r.s.; made from declassified Hengst and Goldert fruit in 2010):  Bright yellow-gold.  Exotic spices, flowers, rose and crushed stone on the perfumed nose, along with a hint of white raisin.  Powerful extract, a saline quality and notes of spices and flowers give this wine a remarkably savory, tactile mid-palate.  A very minerally style of gewurztraminer, this should make an outstanding white wine with cheeses.  Buffering minerality gives the suave, dusty finish a fairly dry impression in spite of the substantial residual sugar.  Wonderfully light on its feet.  (ST)
