Pale straw yellow color.  Complex, subtly cool aromas of grapefruit, mirabelle, citrus peel, white flowers, and minerals. Then dense, juicy and fresh, with a spherical texture and complex flavors of tropical fruits, mint and white pepper, along with a bright mineral overlay. Boasts wonderfully harmonious acidity, with a strong lemon zest and chlorophyll nuance echoing long on the minerally, very pure finish.  Only 4 g/l residual sugar for this classically dry wine, and 5.6 g/l total acidity.  Another great Comtes d'Eguisheim gewurz, made from grapes grown in the Eichberg cru, one of the greatest of all for this variety in Alsace.
