      “One of the great things about New World winemakers is their willingness to experiment because they are not constrained by regulations. This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer (roughly 60/40) is a case in point.  Where else in the world would you find a blend of those two grapes?  And it works.  Each grape shows itself in the finished wine, with Sauvignon Blanc providing a pleasant bite and acidity, while Gewurztraminer lends aromatic notes.  Despite its subtle pungency, it has a roundness -- indeed, even a hint of sweetness -- that makes it a good choice for spicy Asian fare, barbecued chicken, or as a stand-alone aperitif.” 87 Points, Michael Apstein, WineReviewOnline.com
