Wine Description:

Sables et Galets refers to the soil type of the Herrenweg vineyard site located in the Fetch Valley. The sand and pudding stones create a rich, spicy and full Gewurztraminer that ages very well.

Tasting Note:

Sables et Galets Gewurztraminer shows lovely balance of ripeness, varietal purity and finesse. Fragrant rosewater and grapefruit aromas with a hint of sweet spice, pretty rich and pineappley, but with fine structure and complexity, spicy juicy fruit and acidity combine well to finish.

Food Suggestion:

Try with blue cheeses, exotic cuisine such as the lemongrass flavours of Thai food or fish/chicken curries featuring ginger, mustard seed etc. Chinese dishes involving crackling pork could work well, or even desserts if not too sweet, and foie grass.
