Cono Sur Gewürztraminer 2010

I received this wine as a sample from Recas wineries (Cramele Recas) a couple of weeks ago and last night as I had some Asian food I thought it would be a good match for it. And what a great surprise it was. I am a big fan of Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Gruner Veltliner but did not try any from the New World. My tasting experiences with these grape varieties were only from France and Austria.

2010 Cono Sur Gewürztraminer

The wine has a pale light yellow lemon color. The nose is fresh and clean with big lychee aromas, lemon zest, grapefruit and passion fruit flower in the background. A very fruity and refreshing nose. In the mouth this medium bodied wine is off dry with lively acidity, rich with more lychee flavors, grapefruit and lemon peel. The finish is medium, off dry with a very pleasant freshness and a grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste. 84-85 points

I am not sure of the price but if it is under 25 RON (6 EUR) this will become a blockbuster for the summer. My wife loved it and this is not happening often. Try it.

Thanks for reading!

    Alin eu sunt mare fan Gewurtz, Riesling si Gruner Veltliner. Depinde si ce struguri preferi.Cu mancare asiatica a mers foarte bine. O sa intre in lista de preferinte alaturi de Simonsig Chenin Blanc 🙂

      O da, cheninul e cam tot pe-acolo. Si la pret.

    Excellent review! I’m very glad you enjoyed it. I was just looking for suggestions for wines paired with Thai food and many people suggested this Gewurztraminer. My personal favorite is the Sauvignon Blanc, should you ever come across it.

      Hi Isabel,

      Thanks for your comment. I liked the wine a lot and my wife loved it. I’ll try also the SB and let you know how it goes. 🙂
