There was a time when a fine German wine would carry a name such as Eitelsbacher Karthauserhofberg Riesling Kabinett Halbtocken. The Germans have made a big swing in the direction of simplicity lately, and it doesn't seem to have had a bad effect on wines such as this delicious dry gewurztraminer. This is a pleasantly spicy, vibrantly fresh wine with more structure and verve than the typical German gewurztraminer. It offers vibrant flavors of cherry, citrus, honey and tropical fruit, along with a clean, racy finish.
