"The 2015 Gewurztraminer Furstentum offers a very clear, precise and slightly flinty, still a bit reductive bouquet of bright fruits intermixed with fresh crystalline and mineral flavors. Highly elegant and pretty delicate on the palate, this rich, intense and pretty sweet Gewurz needs years to unfold its talents and to get rid of its sweetness (36.77 grams per liter) and baby speck. The tannins are fine and structuring, and the finesse of this wine is really remarkable. Keep it for at least eight to ten years!" (WA)

"The unmistakable yet subtle notes of rose water appear as though they were drizzled over ripe juicy peach flesh. The palate boosts these generous fruit flavors with soft and measured residual sweetness. The medium-dry body is gentle, supple, fluid and generous but punctuated with sprightly, aromatic citrus to strike a harmonious balance. The finish is subtle, clean and perfumed with rose petals. Drink now through 2030." (WE)
