Nice spice, not too acidic. Nice - good with food. Lychee and tropical fruits. Acidity is a bit too low. Tasted at the winery.
The nose has faint rose petal and lychee notes, but it's the honeydew melon, ginger, and blood oranges that really stand out. Medium-to-full bodied and dry, the flavors are similar with loads of melon and ginger with just subtle rose petals in the background. At 13.9% ABV, this is a hefty wine for the region, but it's not heavy or disjointed. Thai food is the cliche pairing for gewurzt, but I actually think it works perfectly with this one.

External Reviews for Lamoreaux Landing Gewürztraminer Seneca Lake Estate
A perfect alternative to Riesling - try this Gewurztraminer from Lamoreaux Landing and be prepared to encounter bright melon, pear and citrus, with higher alcohol levels and a heftier body than most. You might also encounter subtle notes of ginger, spice and a bit of bright hay on the finish. Uniquely created to balance the best aspects of Riesling with heavier whites like Chardonnay - try with salad, appetizers or dessert.
A harmonious melody of tropical fruits with lychee nut, apricot and pineapple notes floating on a velvety mouthfeel. After a blink of peach in the end, the finish is long and well balanced. Fermented dry, it is a perfect match for Asian foods.
Smoky, spicy flavors dominate this dry gewurztraminer. A tailor-made fit for Chinese food and pork roast.
As famous as the Finger Lakes are for their Rieslings, I found the Gewurztraminers to be the highlights of my trip. This one has an astonishingly floral nose; it's silky-smooth on the palate with a clean, dry finish. A great food wine.
Lamoreaux Landing has a track record for producing some of the finest wines in the Finger Lakes Region. Their 1999 Gewürtztraminer could be their best wine to date. The wine opens with a complex nose of rose petals, pear, and cinnamon that leads to cantaloupe and apricot on the pallet, and a full finish showing lots of spice. Pair this fine wine with your favorite Oriental dish and enjoy!
