Delheim Gewürztraminer 2015

Fragrant aromas of perfume, litchi, Turkish delight and petals, underpinned by subtle hints of white pepper and ginger spice. The palate is fresh and elegant, with a delicately balanced fruit / acid structure. The litchi and Turkish delight flavours follow through beautifully onto the palate, and the wine ends with lingering flavours of ginger spice and fresh pineapple.
