My wife has a thing for Gewurz, so much so that she got that nickname. We prefer the dry Alsatian style, the drier the better. We've tasted just about every available Alsatian Gewurz and anything we can find of the sweeter styles.
This kit more than meets the bill for an excellent Gewurztraminer. The elderflower infusion really helps the aroma. The color is light straw and the final product is as clear as glass. The signature lychee flavor is subtle and the viscosity is lighter than some Alsatians, but this wine has gotten great reviews from all of our wine drinking friends.
I do cheat a bit to make this a drier wine by adding half of the finishing juice at the beginning and the rest after primary fermentation is done. This affects the final sweetness but we still have friends think it's sweeter because there is so much fruit-forward flavor in Gewurztraminer grapes.
I have another kit on the way, and suspect this is going to be a regular order at our house.
