Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Explosive and very pronounced on the nose with rose water, violet and, peach and apricot aromas.
Palate Dry and medium bodied with more of the floral and rose flavours, some ripe peach and apricot fruit and a touch of nutmeg and spice towards the finish. Great balance again and very enjoyable.
Colour Pale lemon-yellow

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Robert Parker 93 Points - "The 2017 Alto Adige Gewürztraminer Nussbaumer is beautifully fragrant and redolent of honeysuckle and tropical fruit. The honey-like intensity is incredible. This medium-weight white shows a distant trace of residual sugar. It would make a nice pairing with rice pudding and raisins. An ample 65,000 bottles were made."
