Concentrated, with great fruit purity and strong varietal characters of rose petals and Turkish Delight, this is a medium-dry style with a smooth texture and lasting finish.

It will benefit from bottle ageing 
and we recommend to enjoy it between 
now and 2018.

Ideal serving temperature: 15°C

5 Stars or 93/100 Sam Kim
It's sumptuous and glorious as a great gewürz should be. The bouquet shows complex aromas of tropical fruit, peach, spice and floral. It's concentrated and lush on the palate with impressive mid palate weight and rich texture, enhanced by subtle sweetness and perfectly balanced acidity. It's packed with delicious flavours. At its best: now to 2016.

4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper
The powerful, softly mouthfilling 2010 vintage is still very youthful, but pure and delicate, with lychee, pear, peach and spice flavours, a slightly oily texture and soft, long finish.

4 Stars or 88/100 Bob Campbell MW
Beautifully pure, focused Gewürztraminer with fine Turkish delight/rose petal characters together with a seasoning of star anise and other spices. Made in a medium/dry style with impressive power as evidenced by a lengthy finish.
