Gewurztraminer, there are only a few grapes on this vine. You would like more but it’s so precious that you drink little, you sip it like gold. Being the last one to harvest and therefore waiting to get fully ripened grapes and always fighting off the greedy birds attracted by this beautifully coloured grape makes it quite a struggle.
