I was a little disappointed in this wine. On the nose, geraniums and exotic spices jump out of the glass. The palate is big and heavy with a bitter edge on the back that in my opinion comes from the alcohol. This wine finishes dry. I can see this wine being a good pair with rich, spicy Louisiana food.

Simply put, stunning. Sweet, sweet apple and kiwi, a hint of butter and a beautiful golden amber. I'm not a huge Riesling drinker but can easily come back to this one.

A delicious Gewürtztraminer from a cooler location near the Herrenweg vineyards. This is a dry, full-bodied wine with a full aroma and golden color.

Spicey yet fresh, equally great with Asian food or smoked ham. Very smooth.

Pale straw-green with a golden tinge. Spicy, peppery lime and chamomile aromas on the bright nose, complicated by obvious yeasty notes from the long lees contact. Lime sorbet and peach flavors are clean and persistent, but the finish shows a bit of heat. Made from 20-year-old vines.

Ground ginger, anise and allspice notes mix with flavors of ripe yellow apple, toasted almond and a hint of pastry. Round and creamy, this is balanced by a delicate backbone of acidity. Zesty finish. Drink now through 2017.

Winemaker's Notes:

Nicely floral, gentle rose scents without any excess and nice elegant spices. It is already showing inviting aromatics, maybe letting the taster think that the wine may be a little sweet. The palate is delicate and shows good drinkability, quite unusual, especially for a Gewurztraminer that is totally dry. I cannot stress enough how we are proud to be able to produce such a wine in a rich and powerful vintage.
