A new-release that beautifully shows off Gewurztraminer's exotic, aromatic charms. Ripe, rounded and fresh too, and very rare in Spain. An exciting find from a cellar that specialises in ‘old treasure’ vineyards. A characterful, lightly spiced white.
"Pretty blossom fruit with so much character. Lovely and different as an aperitif or with food"
Beth Willard Buyer for Spain
If you like a white with lots of personality – tasty spice, exotic fruit and nicely rounded – choose Gewurztraminer. This Spanish rarity has freshness too, and makes a perfect partner for spicy Thai stir-fry or peppered squid. And it’s a charming aperitif as well. It comes from the excellent La Viña cellar, where Marta Martínez is winemaker. Our Buyer Beth dropped by and was offered a glass to revive her in the 40 degree heat. Boom - Beth was smitten. The wine has explosive flavours of marmalade, orange peel and lychee, with a truly zingy finish. As critic Will Lyons wrote "in mid summer, as the temperatures rise and dusk falls later, a glass of chilled Gewurz is exactly what the palate craves". Great solo or with spicy or creamy dishes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
