The wine shows a very aromatic nose with subtle notes of exotic fruits (mango, guava and papaya) and sweet spices (cinnamon, cardamon). Full bodied, bright, zesty and crisp, the palate is complex, ample and supple with mango and spicy flavors.
Great match with Asian cuisine and exotic food, sweet and sour dishes, curry of strong cheeses, tarts and fruit based desserts. Try with aged Munster cheese and raisin-walnut bread.
"Jasmine blossom and crisp apple notes on the nose of this wine create appetizing freshness. The palate adds rounded sweetness that lends juiciness and ripeness to the apple and Mirabelle-plum fruit on the rich but bright palate. The finish is easy and medium sweet. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"

"A shy nose on this wine hints at ripe pear. That fruit is more pronounced on the medum-sweet palate where slightly bitter citrus pith provides structure. This wine is balanced, fresh and mouthwatering. Drink soon. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"

"Luscious peach has a heady, lifted element on the nose. On the palate this is met with vivid, juicy lemon freshness to create an exciting and balanced wine. The finish is medium-dry and appealing. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"

"Gentle notes of rose and grapefruit peel on the nose also have a touch of honey. The palate is full of juicy rounded peach aromas—very fruity, very easy. A light dollop of sweetness makes for an off-dry but very balanced and fruity finish. Drink while aromas are at their peak."

"Soft notes of honeysuckle adorn mandarin and clementine fruit. The off-dry palate is richer than the nose suggests and its residual sweetness boosts the full-fruited, peachy nature of the wine. It finishes warm, but zesty and citrus-flavored.- Roger Voss"

"The zesty freshness of Seville orange peel adds a wonderful dimension to the rose petal and apricot notes. Although the palate is not quite as vibrant as the nose, the lighter body and dry finish strike a great balance."

"Tight and chalky, this wine's bright lemon scent carries some pungent gewurztraminer stinkiness - bitter notes of rose petals and litchi. Match its tart fruit to a Thai green papaya salad with salted crab."

"Perhaps the biggest surprise was the fragrant, honeysuckle, rose petal, peach and ripe-apricot scented 2014 Gewurtztraminer. This wine is spicy, round, soft, delicious and medium-bodied. Drink it over the next year."
