SPICE AND ALL THINGS NICE

The bouquet is elegant with aromas of lychees, roses and a tad of ginger. The palate is balanced with a flavourful concentration and mouthfuls of honey and spice.

We are going to let you in on a secret. Even if German vineyard names are tongue twisters, you can use any cell phone translation app to help in translation. Dürkheim is the name of the producing village. Nonnengarten means “nun’s garden.” The Church in the Middle Ages was one of the largest vineyard owners with dibs on the best sites which they religiously, pardon the pun, gave religious names. With secularization and private individuals buying the sites, the vineyard names, which were registered, remained. Kurt Darting is a top producer who does a bang up job with the sometimes finicky Gewürztraminer varietal. It shows up regularly on LCBO shelves, now for the holiday season. This Kabinett classification, a reserve style bottling, means the harvest was undertaken a bit later than normal to allow more concentration of fruit, flavours and aromas. The bouquet is elegant with aromas of lychees, roses and a tad of ginger. The palate is balanced with a flavourful concentration and mouthfuls of honey and spice. A great wine to accompany Asian, especially Thai dishes. Especially turkey with a savoury stuffing would be honoured to make the supreme sacrifice. It received a GOLD medal from the German Agricultural Society.
