Valckenberg Pfalz Gewurztraminer 2004 Wine Review (NW)

Nice nose of pear, peaches, and nutmeg
Sweet core, somewhat flabby
Sweet spice finish with floral notes

We pulled this from the cellar to pair with spicy fish tacos on a hot summer evening. Gewurtztraminer has a knack for complimenting spicy food, and this worked out well for us. PB and his wonderful wife were in town, so we had to have an exotic meal and some interesting wine.

This wine cost a mere $10 and was a nice change of pace. Raise a glass!

Other reviews have panned this wine, but for a simple table wine I thought it was pleasant enough to warrant further purchase. Lots of apple in both aroma and flavor, with the right amount of dryness.
