P.j. Valckenberg Gewürztraminer 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A full-bodied, medium-dry white with a lovely aroma of roses, accompanied by flavors of ripe peach and litchi. Fruity on the front, this Gewrztraminer finishes a bit drier with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove.

A pretty floral nose with aromas of luscious peaches and fresh lime; finishes with the trademark off-dry lychee and spice. Try it with Asian cuisine or your favorite spicy dish.

From Germany's Pfalz region, Valckenberg's proprietary Gewürztraminer is highly aromatic and perfumed with a spicy flavor and an off-dry character. Enjoy this wine with turkey, seafood, spicy Oriental cuisine and powerful cheeses.

True German Gewuuml;rztraminer mdash; as easy to find as it is to say. This grape comes into its own in Alsace, but wait. Golden and spicy with loads of extract and a moderate sweetness. With richness and flavor to spare, this wine will stand up to a huge range of pairings mdash; gazpacho to garbanzo. Powerful spice rounded out with floral, pineapple, honey ripeness.

Literally translated, gewurz means spicy in German. Appropriately, this smallish pink-skinned grape packs quite a wallop. Less serious than its Alsatian neighbors to the south and with more heft than most of its namesakes from California and the Pacific Northwest, this wine from the Rheinpfalz in southern Germany boasts bright flavors of peach and pineapple with a kiss of vanilla. These intensify and linger in the mouth, its slight sweetness balanced by companionable acidity, and it finishes with a subtle spiciness. As a partner to grilled Asian pork and apricot salad (recipe on request) it was sublime. But paired with Asian cuisines, spicy Thai dishes, Indian curries or almost any dish with two jalapentilde;os or more, its spice will suffice. Try a little spice in your life. Itrsquo;s gewurz it!

Americarsquo;s number one selling Gewurtz. Grown in Germanyrsquo;s southern wine regions of Baden and the Pfalz, it is a wine of highly aromatic character and a spicy flavor. Nicely perfumed, with unmistakable aromas of rose petal and lychee.

Golden in color with a floral nose of lilacs and rose petals followed by spice. Sweet in the mouth and a soft rich middle.
