Bright yellow-gold.  Lemon verbena and lavender aromas mix with peach and crystallized ginger on the ripe nose.  Rich, dense and suave, with canned peach and apricot flavors and a hint of bitterness at the back that adds freshness and complexity.  This has a good deal of residual sugar (89 g/l) but has such bright, ripe acidity (7 g/l) that it really doesn't taste that sweet after all.

Member Notes

Stunning, even if not my typical Gewürztraminer profile

Rich goldernrod hue. Gobs of apricot, honey, canned peaches. Floral notes of honeysuckle and candied lemongrass, lingering boiled sugar cane stalk and white flowers. Very weighty and glycerine, off-dry. Mother in law remarked it was absolute silk across palate - I would agree.
Beautiful Wine

Deep gold in color with heavy floral nose of honeysuckle and apricot. On the palate, apricot and lychee flavors persist with a great finish of salted honey. Nice off dry wine!
Decidedly dessert.

Very peachy for a Gewurtz. And definitely off dry to sweet. I happen to like that or I might be surprised by the comments of bracing acidity. Actually lovely. This wine is a treat and for my cellar an early drinker. nothing wrong with that. A pleasure to enjoy now. I'd try a nice mango/lime phylo concoction. It's sweet But drink.

About Alsace

Alsace has been almost pathologically ignored by the American wine-drinking public for generations--a real mystery in light of the great number of juicy, pure wines produced in this picture-postcard region of northeastern France.

Gewurztraminer

One of the wine world's love-it-or-hate-it grapes, Gewürztraminer is for many wine lovers the signature variety of Alsace. Its highly perfumed aromas of rose petal, smoked meat, lychee, grapefruit, and spices are immediate and captivating, although some examples lack refinement and seem a bit blowzy owing to low acidity and high alcohol. Gewürztraminer is...
