Bechtheimer Stein Gewurztraminer "Spatlese" 2006 wine reviewby (PB)
G & M Wachner produces this wonderful Gewurz and shipping it for a mere $12 from the Rheinhessen which is the region of Germany it comes from.
It has a lightly golden hue and sweet pie spice with loads of tropical fruit in the bouquet which is outstanding presenting a little caramel note as well. I LOVE this grape!
Palate--Tropical fruit blast on the front palate with delicious sweet mango and papaya on a structure that is up to the task. Wow! Chill this baby down for a real treat. Great as an aperitif or with those difficult Asian dishes that tend to stump people when pairing. What a nice wine at $12 and a gorgeous label to boot! Raise a glass!
