The aromas are evocative with notes of rose petals and exotic fruit. Slightly off-dry on the palate, this vintage unveils a bouquet of ripe cantaloupe, guava, and nectarine aromas which are balanced with delicate spices such as ginger and cardamom. The finish is long and elegant.
This Gewurztraminer is versatile and can be paired with smoked salmon as well as ginger-braised pork, Southeast Asian cuisine such as red coconut curry, Indian, or Moroccan-style dishes. Also great on its own, as an aperitif, or with foie grasand rich, mature cheeses.

Damask rose and crushed elder leaf make for a subtle yet aromatic topnote on the nose of this wine. The palate comes in with gentle, medium sweetness that accentuates peachy juiciness at the core and rounds things out with smooth, candied-lemon flavor. Freshness balances this harmonious wine with an endless, off-dry finish. Drink 2025–2040.
94 Points James Suckling
This is a rich, full-bodied gewurztraminer with lush papaya and lychee aromas. But the power is underplayed on the palate, where it has an extremely seductive texture that extends right through the silky, long finish. None of the bitterness or forthright sweetness that makes some wines of this category very unfriendly with food. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
