Wine of the Week for April 24, 2006

Badischer Winzerkeller Baden Gewurztraminer 2003 - $9.95
Style: W3

My initial impression of this one was a bit modest, but it grew on me. It shows upfront aromas of baked apple, white peach and traces of spice. The palate has a honey-like texture, with peach and blood orange flavours and solid acid core plus good body and length. A bit shy, but full and flavourful, and who can argue about the price? Would work well with smoked salmon, swiss-type cheeses or schnitzel. (LCBO 336735)

A modest wine, yes, but damn fine value for under 10 bucks
