Call me crazy, but this wine had aromas of maple bar donut and cake icing! It also had tart notes of Granny smith apples and asian pears that evolved into white ginger and jasmine flowers. Let me just say that, along with all the unique aromas and flavors, this Pét-nat had so many bubbles!! Those bubbles created great texture and an almost foam-like sensation in my mouth, which was a fun feeling. The gewürztraminer grape added some sweetness but the finish was dry. It was a really fun wine you really ought to order before Brandborg Vineyard sells out!
