The wine is a light straw colour with a nose typical for this Gewurztraminer block. It is noticeably floral, redolent of oranges and ginger plus hints of Turkish Delight. Considerable mid-palate weight and a refined rich texture accompany the satisfying dry palate. The flavours are fresh mineral and watermelon, orange or mandarin zest, ginger and Indian chai. It is a moderately austere wine – even tight at this point in its development – but even in its youth it will work well when paired with strongly flavoured dishes. It should be drinking well between 3 & 7 years in a good cellar and I expect its development to go beyond this.
