Typical lychee and stone fruit notes; off-dry (drier than other Gewurz I've tasted) with an acidic backbone that may allow a few years bottle aging. At present it's good, but not luscious.

Full medium gold. Exotic aromas and flavors of musky apricot, orange and medicinal herbs; one senses the wine’s firm acidity on the nose. Then spicy, intense and surprisingly dry in the mouth, with a creamy texture leavened by some unabsorbed CO2. This chewy, substantial pinot blanc needs food.

The smell of the sea winds through this full-bodied Pinot Blanc. Pretty peach, apricot, clementine and honeysuckle notes flesh it out, while zesty acidity provides a firm framework. Delicious on its own, but would pair well with seafood. Drink now through 2014.
