When it comes to Gewürztraminer wines, I have friends who land on both sides; some like the generally sweet makeup of a Gewürztraminer, whereas the others avoid it like the plague, claiming their disdain for sweet wines. Knowing the palates I often have to please at my dinner parties and get togethers, I’ve steered away from trying to make a Gewürztraminer work for the evening. So, imagine my surprise in trying Gray Monk’s Gewürztraminer 2011 when I thought to myself, I could serve this to the discerning palates that I entertain. It was that good!
On colour, Gray Monk Gewürztraminer 2011 holds a light yellowish, green hue. On the nose, scents of pear, melon, strawberry, and some spice are present. On the palate, a fantastic blend of tempered acidity, lichee and citrus make this a great drinking Gewürztraminer.
Gray Monk Gewürztraminer 2011 is a definite must try as its palatable makeup is one that shows maturity and elegance, with its sugar content being well balanced with the wines entire makeup.
