Wine quality levels as the German ratings of Qba, Kabinett and Spaetlese or equivalent are preferable.
Styles of off dry and dry are both great wines.
This is a dry Qba. rated Gewürztraminer white wine and has matured in oak barrels for some time in order reaching a status of reserve, a very pretentious grape with a seductive scent of roses, nutmeg and Chrysanthemum. Light in acidity with a touch of leeches sweetness, well balance.
