The nose is exotically aromatic with apricot, dried long’an, orange peel, honey, chrysanthemum, and hint of smoke. Viscous yet lively. Taste sweeter than the Indice 3 suggests, almost like drinking a late harvest bottling, but with impeccable acidity. Long bitter sweet finish.

NOSE: Melon, flower nectar, lychee, papaya. Distinct mint - Wintergreen (??). A little pine sol. Huh! Smell keeps changing, a lot going on here.
TASTE: basically as it smells … tropical fruit and flowers with a dash of pine sol and mint. There’s almost an artificial sugar taste … mouthwash-like. Weird! 89. — 2 months ago
I went to Oktoberfest in Munich several years ago and had such a great time I celebrate at home every year. Though I’m a little late, I wanted to do it before the end of October. I made brats with sauerkraut and mustard, pretzels with homemade beer cheese, gurkins and cheese. I did learn a big lesson today. Gewürztraminer is also made in California. 🙄 I assumed it was only a German grape. — 3 months ago
