Tasting Note: Another well-constructed, expectations-surpassing gem from Hermann Wiemer’s winemaker Fred Merwath.

This golden-colored riesling has an aromatic nose of peach, apricot, red apple, pineapple and lemon.

On the palate the full-bodied dry white is medium-plus in acidity with harmonious balance between the sugar and acid.

Like lazy 5:00 p.m.-summer sunshine in your glass this gewürtz has a long, pleasing finish with a combination of pleasing aromas.

If you like gewürztraminer this one is a winner; if you’ve never tried a gewürtz this is the one to try to experience the best of what the grape varietal has to offer — anywhere.

Bottle Note: Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard combines Old World tradition with New World innovation, hand-crafting elegant, well-balanced wines. Our ecologically conscious viticulture highlights the distinct qualities of our premier vineyard sites. This full-bodied, complex wine displays a delicate floral scent accompanied by a distinctive spice in remarkable balance. Vineyard site: Magdelena 70%, Josef 30%.
