The Gewurztraminer really pops on the nose here along with wonderfully fresh raspberry fruit and hints of flint, dried flowers and Swedish Fish. A touch sweet on entry, this shows fine balancing acidity in the mouth. The Gewurz adds nice honey and honeysuckle notes early on the palate, joined by flavors of sweet red berries and a hint of chocolate on the palate. The finish is more of the same with an orange rind/citrus character joining in. This is unusual and the floral quality contributed by the Gewurztraminer will prove to be divisive, but this is awfully well made in its style and will knock some folks’ socks off. 88pts
