Warm weather in spring fostered an early flowering. Summer was typical with no extremes of
temperature or storm, but with more rain than in 2007, but equal to the 10-year average. Periodic
rainfall delayed picking, but there were enough dry periods to harvest healthy grapes and it paid
to wait for ideal ripeness. The wines of vintage 2008 are promising: rich in nuances and
substance, complex, very aromatic – and all this, with moderate levels of alcohol.
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.
