This well-crafted blend includes Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Muscat. The aromatic varieties dominate, pushing spicy notes front and center. They're followed by brightly fruity flavors of peach, melon and light tropical highlights, all rounded off with a smidgen of residual sugar. Quite delightful and perfect for an apéritif or spicy Asian fare.
