Fresh, inviting aromas of lychee, melon and white blossoms waft out of the glass. This wine has a pleasantly light texture that carries notes of wildflower honey, dill and fresh honeydew. Acidity enhances and brings to life this vibrant bouquet of flavors, leading into a long, restrained finish.

This gewurz is built on a monumental scale with gigantic concentration and structure, easily filling out the huge body. The abundant fine tannins soak up almost all of the unfermented grape sweetness and drive the very long and texturally complex, spicy finish. Already pretty mind-blowing, but great aging potential! From biodynamically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2025.

There’s nothing obvious about this intensely spicy gewurz. In fact, studying the aromas is like solving an intricate puzzle. Very powerful and creamy with succulent tropical-fruit character, the bold minerality balancing the touch of sweetness. The palate is no less intriguing, thanks to the cool depths that are ever more revealed on the very refined finish. From biodynamically grown grapes.

This shows fine balance, with well-cut acidity and a zesty thread of pink grapefruit peel providing precisely enough verve to keep the rich baked pineapple, dried apricot, honeycomb and toasted cardamom notes from ranging into opulence. Fragrant and floral on the creamy finish.
