It's Friday! Stay in, order Chinese and enjoy this Gewurz!
Of a bright golden color, this wine shines as you pour it in the glass. It exudes an elegant perfume of tropical fruit, grapefruit, melon, apricot. With a full round mouth, the Hogue Gewurztraminer is fresh, rich and just off-dry. Very fruity, its buttery texture will persist for about 20 seconds on honey notes and a hint of bitterness that will remind you of orange zests. This wine would be a lovely pairing to Asian foods like curries, spring-rolls and stir-fries.
