Overview

Appellation: Alsace

Gewurztraminer is a curious variety because it needs lots of sunshine and heat to complete perfect physiological ripeness, but at the same time needs to grow slowly in order to acquire complex flavours. The profile of the 2011 vintage was very good for Gewurztraminer, however it was a balancing act to restrain sugars and maintain acids. This wine is sourced partly from the Herrenweg vineyard and partly from Wintzenheim, and was blended carefully to achieve a complex yet highly drinkable wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Yellow straw

Aroma

The nose shows classic rose/floral aromatics, but not overtly, and it is just starting to develop more interesting spicy/peppery notes.

Palate

The fact that it spent the whole time on gross lees, helps to restrain the varietal characteristic of this grape, that can sometimes be excessive. The palate is long,

elegant, and feels dry, and is already an excellent food wine.

Food Matching

This style of Gewurztraminer would be perfect with grilled fish or white meat, smoked foods or many Asian influenced dishes.

Cellaring

Best consumed from 2012 through to 2018
