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!

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.

Low acidity almost syrupy lychee notes

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.

very nice gewurtztraminer, would get again price permitting

Complex Blend Of Tastes; Better Suite For Dessert Or Cheese Course Than Meal

Only criticism is that wine was sweeter than I expected and did not really work with Thai food (as many Gewurtzes do). I think it would work well with a rich dessert and/or a cheese course.

Not a traditional Alsatian Gewurztraminer

I was expecting a dry but fruity wine and instead, this is very sweet without a balancing acidity. Very disappointing considering the Wine Spectator review it received that did not mention anything about sweetness. It does have some complexity, but...

Alsace 2010

Like 2010 in much of France, Alsace saw an excellent harvest that produced wines with great concentration and focus, balanced by beautiful acidity and freshness.

The previous winter was cold and long, extending into early March. Bud break was pushed back, and a hard freeze caused damage to some vines. April remained cool but temperatures rose in May allowing the vines to progress. Flowering was late nonetheless, and a swift temperature drop during this crucial period caused further crop loss from millerandage and coulure.

The erratic weather continued into June, which saw a major hot, dry spell during its last week. July was hot, with periods of storms and rain. August was back to wet and cold, and fighting off disease became critical due to the spread of oidium and mildew. At this point in the season the grapes were behind in the ripening cycle. This turned out to be a boon, however, as the grapes felt less impact from potentially damaging rainstorms.

Finally, at the end of August the weather improved, and remained consistent through October. Temperatures slowly tapered off and drying, cool north winds allowed a long hang-time for the grapes, helping to keep sugar and acid in balance.

The resulting wines are focused and intense, with good ripe fruit and brilliant acidity and should have the structure and depth to age well. A classic vintage with many superb wines, but unfortunately a small crop and one that may have some variation given the uneven and crazy weather during the season.
