  • Evolution 19th Edition

    Snoothrank:

    Sokol Blosser is known for its Dundee OR Pinot Noir, but the blends are ... ... Muller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and a host of others. The flavour tends to pear, peach and lychee - possibly suggestive of a goodly portion of Gewurztraminer. Fun stuff and good value. 87 poin Read More

  • I'm going to be the contrarian and suggest riesling. Gewurztraminer can be excellent, but it's a stronger, distinctive flavor profile that can sometimes polarize opinions. Riesling can be superb, matches a broader range of food options with its range of subtleties, and is generally appreciated by a broader range of drinkers.Do you have any idea ... Read More

  • Hi Miguel,Both of Gewurztraminer and Riesling grape varietals originated from Germany but they are slightly  different in aromatics and flavor profile. As EMARK said, "Gewurztraminer has a spicy characteristic". Dry Riesling is also acceptable though it is less fruity but everything is in the acidity, texture and intensity. You'd better try both...

  • Navarro Vineyards White Blend Mendocino County Edelzwicker 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nice and inexpensive Mendocino white blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Muscat. There's not as much aromatics, as I'd expect for this blend. From the glass there is some nice notes of tangerine, ripe peach, a nice creamy texture, medium acidity and a medium finish. Very good QPR. Read More
