Very fragrant nose of yellow and pink roses with plenty of turkish delight. Very concentrated, but the fine tannins and excellent freshness (in spite of modest acidity) give this a wonderful balance, which makes this frankly off-dry gewurz hard to resist. And the turkish-delight finish is also something else! From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

With its floral delicacy and lively, graceful personality, this is the opposite of the bombastic norm. The touch of sweetness stays in the background and the floral freshness wins out at the long, precise finish. From biodynamically grown grapes.

Ripe and juicy, offering flavors of baked melon, yellow peach and clementine fruit, with a subtle underpinning of smoke and saline. Hints of candied grapefruit zest and ground ginger play on the finish.

Rich, powerful and frankly sweet, but somehow cool with delicate exotic-fruit character (not just lychee), this is a highly structured gewurz that will need some years of bottle age to reveal its ample treasures. I love the way the smokiness builds at the very long, succulent finish. From biodynamically grown grapes.

Hints of gunpowder and flint mix with a subtle but sonorous tone of Damask rose on the nose of this wine. The palate brings a much brighter, lemony note of sunny peach ripeness, suggesting the juiciness of peach compote. The purity of flavor is highlighted by lemony accents that frame this generous, nectar-like wine.
