- The Wine
DetailsBen says of the 2017 (November 2018): Having tried to enjoy this grape for many years with little success (Stift Klosterneuburg being the only winner), I came to this wine with my usual heavy heart. How wrong that was! This is a perfect example of how a cool climate and a little altitude can transform a grape from run-of-the-mill to extraordinary. This wine is lovely and has everything good about Gewurtztraminer and none of the bad. Where it is so often harsh and metallic, this is elegance itself. The lychee and rose petal aromas and flavours are simply without blemish and very Goldilocks in style - not too much and not too little. This is a wine that has brought me back to a grape I have tried to avoid and proves, yet again, that there is nothing we can dismiss utterly but should persist in finding the one we can love.
