Is a full flavored wine exhibiting rose-petals, pear and apricot character, and the spicy floral aromas typical to the Gewurztraminer grape. The residual sugar is well balanced by acidity, so that the overall full effect is refreshing, neither cloying nor tart.
This wine has a pleasant, long finish.
