Handley Gewurztraminer 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Handley Gewurztraminer"There's a hint of rose if you search for it, but this is not aggressively floral. Instead, it's fresh, chalky, crisp and clean, like biting into a fresh litchi. Firm acidity drives the wine, cutting right through the fruit to deliver its flavor into the meat of whatever is for dinner." 93pts Wine & SpritsAromas of melon and lychee are enhanced by heady orange blossom perfume. The palate is layered with spice, grapefruit, and peaches.The clean fruit flavors and excellent structure of this dry wine make it a natural partner to a wide variety of food, from mildly spicy Thai curries to classic Alsace sauerbraten.
