Notes

 
FOOD PAIRING:
Thai curry dishes, rich duck, or spicy shrimp on a bed of baby spinach. Very delicious also with cheese like Munster, Roquefort, aged old Comté, or on a goat “crotin” with walnut bread. .
 
TASTING NOTES:
A restrained dry Gewurztraminer with fruity notes of candied orange peel, cantaloupe, and spice that are tempered by the wine’s bright acidity. Well-balanced, with a moderate finish that’s fresh and mineral.
