    September 15, 2014 - I had grossly under estimated this wine. Lots of pear and juicy grape notes and not all too flowery and Gewürz-y. Starting to get a little waxy on the palate and nose a la Brandborg Riesling at 5 years and beyond. But still has a grape crystal note with slicing acid. Absolutely fantastic with spicy Asian peanut noodles.

    August 3, 2013 - I agree with the others on this one, great nose of citrus and stone fruits... burst of acidity at first followed by layers of fruit, minerals and acid... nice easy finish that makes you want more. Very good.

    May 12, 2013 - Stone fruit & lychee nose. The palate is very vibrant with notes of stone fruit, lychee & minerals. Pleasant acidity & a lively finish. Very refreshing & tasty.

    March 5, 2013 - Smells great, big aromas of fresh squeezed orange, peach, grass and citrus. Loads of acidity on the palate early on in the palate pairing with limes, oranges and pineapple. Long expression of acidity, it sits in the cheeks, and the flavor lingers nicely and long on the finish. Paired ok with meatballs surprisingly. Overall this is a really nice wine, medium-high intensity flavors and acid with good integration and interesting, delicious flavors.

    December 31, 2012 - I can't imagine Gewurz getting much better than this, especially for the price.
