Last of these - still an enjoyable wine. This time it was paired with the early part of a hibachi dinner (miso soup, salad, fried rice/noodles). It's a nice dry white wine with nice floral notes that gives almost an impression of sweetness. Easy drinking and a good food wine.
Agree with others little on the nose that reminds me of gewurz, mostly grassy/herbal (sauv blanc like). The palate adds honeysuckle and bit of citrusy fruit & light acidity. Not a bad wine, perhaps a bit simple just again does not show typicity. Drink now.
Agree with others that when served at frig temp this wine gives up little on the nose or the palate and seems to drink more like a pinot blanc. As it warms the distinct floral characteristics of gewurz become more pronounced but I still prefer Navarro's version over this.
Brought to dinner at a thai restaurant. Pale straw color. Non-existent nose which is something I never associate with a good gewurtztrraminer. No spices, no floral notes. Nothing. The wine came across as a bit flat on the palate too with some spicy tropical fruit flavors and medium acidity being the only things that stood out. Not a terrible wine and certainly drinkable but I was really expecting more from this wine based on the winemaker's pedigree. This was a weak effort but I guess it could have been an off bottle perhaps.
