Exuberant, seductive, powerful, full-bodied, charmer, the Gewurztraminer accumulates all the superlatives.
On a nose of rose petals, mango and lychee, the palate is sweet, supple and racy.
It remains a good dry Gewurztraminer that will be served with smoked fish, herring, anchovies or sardines.
It will brighten your exotic cuisines (Indian, Asian, West Indian, …),
your cuisine based on fruits (duck with orange, filet mignon of pork with pineapple, …)
and will surprise you on strong cheeses (Munster, Roquefort, Old Lille, …).
It is a festive wine that excels as an aperitif and with desserts not too sweet.
