The heady scent of Damask rose rises from the glass. The peach on the rich, soft and mellow palate is bathed in rose scent too. Residual sweetness boosts the perfumed aspect of this wine, bringing lychee and peach into play as well. A lovely phenolic edge provides structure and fluidity on this textbook Gewurztraminer. The finish is off dry.2014 Patergarten Pinot Gris
Lovely and pure notes of Conference pear hover above a concentrated taut body. This is dry and has a pleasantly bitter pithy edge that seems to draw out the precision of the fruit even more. The palate is streamlined, taut and energetic and the finish is long and impressive with a final flourish of pear and citrus.2015 Pinot Gris
Ripeness and generosity of pure pear flavors characterize nose and palate. There is concentration on the palate and both juicy ripeness and zesty freshness, creating a lively fruit-driven wine. The finish is long and appetizing.2015 Rosenbourg Riesling
An earthy element touches upon the lemon freshness on the nose and palate. The dry style lets the citrus freshness express itself fully. There is the tang of zest and the bright juiciness of lemon fruit. The palate is concentrated and taut, submerging any earthy tones to end in brisk, clean freshness.2016 Gewurztraminer
Ripe peach has a touch of jasmine and rose on the nose. The palate has a zesty, slightly bitter but enlivening freshness. The palate is generous but poised with a harmonious balance. This is off dry but subtle.2016 Riesling
ome yeast notes still play on the nose. The palate has some zesty freshness that comprises lemon, grapefruit and tangerine. The palate is light and fresh; the body is light with a dry but lasting lemony finish.
