Golden colour, full of floral, spicy aromas. Supple, balanced and pleasantly long on the palate. (Walter Hicks). “Gewürz” is German for herb or spice, which is appropriate as this low acidic Alpine grape pairs perfectly with Asian, Middle-Eastern and  Moroccan cuisines. Michel Léon wine’s sweet aromas are floral/rose petal/burnt incense and its exotic notes include citrus, ginger, and, spices bring out the best of Duck, Chicken, Pork, Seafood and Vegetarian dishes.
