Winemaker's Notes:

The Pfalz, Germany's second largest wine region has been dubbed the "Tuscany of Germany" because of its warm, sunny climate and the wide variety of grapes and other fruits that grow there.

This is a full-bodied, medium-dry white with a lovely aroma of roses, accompanied by flavors of ripe peach and litchi. Fruity on the front, this Gewürztraminer finishes a bit drier with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove.

This wine is a perfect match with spicy cuisine, meatier seafood, poultry, and barbecue.

My Notes:

About Valckenberg:

Weingut P.J. Valckenberg and its more than 500-year-old vineyards are located in the heart of the "Nibelung Town” of Worms on the banks of the Rhine. Founded in 1786, the house of P.J. Valckenberg has more than two centuries of experience in bottling and exporting fine German wines.

In the late Middle Ages, Worms was a crossroads of the great trade routes and a site of important ecclesiastical and imperial decisions. It was also a popular layover for pilgrims heading south. They prayed before the statue of the Madonna and refreshed themselves in the monastery with the wine the canons produced from the Liebfrauen vineyard. As such, the wine's fame was virtually predestined to spread far beyond the borders of Worms.
