Country: Chile, Curicó Valley, 
Grape Varieties:  100% Gewürztraminer
Tasting Notes: The intensely perfumed nose offers aromas of papaya honey, ripe quince, and pears in syrup
over a backdrop of wild herbs such as chamomile. Corpulent on the palate with the rich volume on the mid-palate and a very good balance between sweetness and natural acidity. The aromas perceived on the nose are accentuated on the very long and lingering finish.

The Grape
Gewürztraminer is a high quality white grape which produces classic varietal wines in the Alsace region of France.

It is the second most widely planted grape in Alsace and the most widely planted in the Haut-Rhin where it is particularly well suited to the clay-rich soils found in the Vosges foothills. It is normally fermented dry and produces golden, medium to full-bodied wine with heady aromas of lychees, rose petals and white peaches.

It attains naturally high sugar levels far in excess of Riesling and this makes it ideal for sweet, late harvest wines. These can be unctuously sweet and luscious and the best can last for decades.

It is also planted in Germany, Austria and Alto Adige in Italy and to a lesser extent in Australia, New Zealand and California. Gerwürz means spice in German, although this pink-skinned grape tends to produce exotically perfumed rather than spice laden wines.
