This was maybe a tiny notch below the previous one while still outstanding: Amazing nose of lychees and even a bit of petrol. On the palate, lychees, starfruit, peaches and smoky minerality. Body feels a bit lighter than previously. The finish is forever.
Fan-freaking-tastic! Spice, lychee, roses and a hint of tropical fruit make this textbook Gewürztraminer. It has a subtle sweetness that only enhances the flavors, and adds more depth. This is truly outstanding, and drinking so well right now that I considered opening a second bottle. Just a wow wine tonight.
