Tasting Notes: For 2014, the Quail's Gate Gewurztraminer showcases a little more of the opulent, tropical fruit we've come to associate with the Alsatian variety than from the 2013 release - especially on the off-dry palate where the initial citrus tartness is overtaken by lychee and papaya fruit through to the bright and spicy, mineral-infused finish. The nose offers a nice combination of light floral and peach skin aromas. 
Drink now-2016.
