TASTING NOTE: Gewürztraminer is one of the most fragrant wines around, and Fielding took great pains to preserve the aromatics in this wine. The grapes were cold-soaked to extract the aromatic compounds locked in the skins, and fermentation and ageing was done in stainless steel. A lovely floral nose leads to classic Gewürz flavours of lychee and rosewater, with notes of apricot and pear. Round and pleasant, with a long, perfumed finish. Try this with pakoras or a lamb-and-apricot tajine. (Vintages panel, April 2017) Price $ 19.95
