Question: When could the word “lychee” be appropriately used in wine tasting?
Answer: Whenever you experience that small tropical fruit commonly found in China showing up in your wine. Lychee (or Litchi) has unique very aromatic special perfumes of spicy sweet roses mixed with a somewhat similar fruitiness of fresh Muscat grapes. You often find it prominent in the aromas of a Gewurztraminer wine – so may be appropriately used when tasting that grape variety.
