LB-Gewurztraminer

2012 Limited Edition Gewürztraminer

£111.00

(6 x 750ml)

Exotic and intriguing; think middle-eastern spices (star anise, clove, cinnamon), lychee and rose petals.  Luscious.  Wonderful when paired with dishes featuring chilli and coriander.  Equally good with creamy cheeses or pâté.  Silver Medal Winner, Mundus Vini International Wine Awards, 2012.

Product Description

Intensely aromatic and pleasingly luscious.  An unusual and difficult variety to produce but totally worth the effort.  Silver Mundus Vini International Wine Awards, Bronze Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Challenge.

Legendary mens mag, Esquire, say “…heady and spicy, slightly smoked and gloriously complex…”
