Today, the Bavarian-themed community is home to more than a dozen tasting successful tasting rooms. This superb Gewürztraminer opens with gorgeous aromas of apple and rose petals, followed by flavors of honey, clove and white blossoms. There is a bit of sweetness, and the accompanying acidity expertly backs it up. This is a truly pretty wine.
