Fresh, peppery, well-developed on the palate with typical notes of peaches, white flowers, soap, honey, hay and white pepper. This wine has absolutely benefited from cellaring and feels very rich and complex. I would drink now if I had more bottles.
We liked it (because we like all Gewürztraminers) but this is not the best of the breed that we've had. Fragrances of lychees and honeysuckle. Somewhat unctuous on the palate with flavors of apples, lychees, and a bit of spice.
Clear, light golden-yellow in appearance with a sensual nose of yellowish fruits accented with an enticing floral lift. The palate is well-balanced, honeyed, and a certain fruitiness that is reminiscent of apples cider, pineapples, summer peaches, cooked pears and ends with a very satisfying and refreshing finish. A very "un-gewurztraminer-like" gewurztraminer but enjoyable nonetheless.
14% abv. Pale gold color with greenish tinge. Fruit and spice on the nose--almost a spiced peach note and some ginger and mace. Tastes a bit sweet. Stayed pleasurable through three evenings. I had it with chicken and broccoli one evening and also with shrimp. I was surprised by how well this held its quality for more than five years after harvest. It still has some acidic zip.
very intersting bouquet, with white flowers notes and green apples. Persistent enough. Served with a special plate of pork with bacon, apples and onion roasted all together, very perfect combination, taste continue in the mouth as a concert. great value for money!
Its a typical Gewurts on the sweet side. Honey and peaches, a little bid oddball and held up well with the asian food. Fine value. 14% alcohol which we all really noticed, it added to the fun of dinner. Rich amber color.
Pale yellow, nice peachy citrusy bouquet, quite pronounced legs which caused me to check the alcohol content (it was 14%, really high for an Alsace Gewurztraminer), alcohol present in taste, some burn on finish. This is just not right, won't buy again.
Drink Alsace - Wines of Pure Expression (TasteLive.com): (14%) Electric nose with loads of sweet peach floral blossom aromas. The palate starts bright, juicy and spiced with zested citrus fruits before turning to a spiced, lingering, drying finish that seems to go on and on. Fantastic stuff here. Pricey at $20+ but well worth spending an evening with…
Colour was slightly deeper yellow than what we expected for its young age. The tropical fruit nose of lychee and jackfruit was obvious but restraint at the same time. Medium bodied. Closer to dry than off dry. Structured palate with subtle tropical fruits, apple and a hint of lemon. Short to moderate length. Match quite well with South Indian Curry.
In my opinion this is a very low level Gewurztraminer. It does not appear to be sourced from a specific vineyard. It has that typical slightly fruity/citrus flavor of an Alsatian wine but little depth of flavor. Its main advantage is low price, but if one enjoys Alsatian wine there are better choices for just slightly more money.
Pale straw color. Nose opens with oriental spices, lychee, pineapple, a touch of pear. On the palette smokey lemon, minerals with a touch of apple. Very little fruit taste. Would only suggest for the very dry wine lover.
Profound golden colour Full aromatic nose with lychees, ripe pineapple, ginger, apricots, pears, ... amazing aromas. Dry? Well, Pretty sweet and with a long aftertaste, good length. At this level, a very good Gtraminer after all.
Color dorado profundo. Nariz plenamente aromática con lichis, piña madura, jengibre, albaricoques, peras, ... aromas deliciosos. ¿Seca? Bueno bien dulce con un largo postgusto y una buena persistencia. En este nivel, después de todo un buen Gtraminer.
I served this in my wine course. Showed a bit weakly next to the other wines of the evening due to the (relatively) short finish. But on it’s own, or with pheasant and fennel pate, did very well. Nice spicy nose, mid weight mouthfeel. Relatively high acidity compared to most Gewurtztraminer, which helps to create a sensation of lightness
Golden straw. Pungent, floral notes of lychees, stonefruit, honey, and earth. Bright and zesty in the mouth, picking up pineapple, and a snappy acidity that augments its underlying minerality. Good length and decent depth. Flavorful.
A pretty classic nose of grapefruit, lemon peel, rose water and nivea hand cream. Dry and fullbodied palate with lovely acidity carrying the weight. Plentiful tropical fruit, florals, spices and grapefruit. Gently fruity long finish. A well-balanced effort.
