It’s been a while since I’ve been truly excited by a Gewurztraminer, so I’m thrilled this is so affordable. Layered aromas and flavors of mango, peach, white flowers, and a bit of vanilla bean. There’s a lift of apple and clementine in the midpalate, and while your initial impression has a note of honey in it this wine is undeniably dry. Excellent with spicy Asian food (even better with shrimp in spicy chili-orange sauce).
