Halleck Dry Gewurztraminer 2010
Nose of flowers like magnolia, lychee and a slight melon quality. Crisp acid and a nice minerality throughout. Flavors of lychee, ginger, grapefruit and cardamom. The minerality gives it a nice zing, which feels almost effervescent on the palate.
Stunning example of an Alsatian-style Gewurztraminer. Bone dry, bright acid, crisp minerality with the sweet floral aromas of ripe lychee and rose petals classic to this varietal. The nose is deceptively sweet for such a bright dry wine. This is a California wine with true relationship to its French heritage.
Bone dry. Super fragrant. Nice spice and lychee fruit up front. Good minerality. Smooth and sleek profile. Perfume, honey and loads of florals. Very nice!! - Tasted at Halleck Vineyard Feb 2011
