50th Parallel Estate 2015 Gewürztraminer

Bright, clear, pale wheat sheaf. Richly aromatic with tropical essences of passionfruit, lychee nut, and mango with a hint of exotic allspice and honeysuckle. This wine is slightly off dry, and the palate is deceptively lush and mouth filling showing tropical melon fruits first and foremost. Honeydew and dragonfruit may come to mind then give way to a rich plush ruby grapefruit framed by a slight Indian spice. Acidity balances the rich tropical textures and sends the message to the consumer that more may be necessary. Think of: A tropical island where Reggae and surfing are the national pastimes. Beautiful people, sand and palm trees are the conversation pieces, and you have nowhere else to be but where you are. Fill a cooler with wine and head out on the water in the hot sun with your best friends, bold conversations, and don’t forget to leave the cell phones on the beach.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on November 23, 2017

Intense floral aromatics without smelling like a bottle of Chanel No.5.  Dry style, tropical fruit, grilled pineapple, lychee.  Pair with savoury curry dishes then hang on to your socks!
