    July 28, 2017 - Excellent foil for key lime pie, the sugar and acidity match perfectly.

    November 1, 2016 - I've always liked these, but they increasingly come across as having unreal acidity that nearly covers up the ample residual sugar. Plenty of exotic tropical character, but not a great pairing to pumpkin pie.

    October 30, 2016 - Great nose-fresh oil paint, tropical papaya conglomerate. Slow, but impressive development. While it isn't as intense as other dessert wines, the balance and precision pull you in. Recognizable Gewurztraminer spiciness. Williams Selyem is a class act.

    February 13, 2016 - Fresh and blisteringly acidic, saturn peaches, pineapple, tartaric, lovely.

    February 11, 2016 - Lovely and intense as always. Showing a bit drier than I recall, this is more about intense acidity and citrus fruit than sweetness. Very fragrant, love this stuff.
