In a nutshell: Quintessentially aromatic Alsatian Gewurtraminer.
The lowdown: There's no mistaking this one! A no holds barred Gewurztraminer that immediately hits you aromatic spices and lychees. The wonderfully floral flavours are balanced with gloriously ripe fruit and make an unashamedly crowd pleasing wine.
When to drink: This is perfect with aromatic spice based dishes (particularly Thai) and can also be matched with a strong cheese such as Stliton.
