750cl * 13.5% ABV * Alsace, France
Alsace is the source of many of the world's finest wines, but remains a chronically underrated wine region and thus offers immense value to drinkers and collectors. With its floral aroma, spicy flavour and rich texture, Gewurztraminer is one of the most characteristic varieties and reaches its finest expression in Alsace.
This cult vintage took a while to start, with a late budding in April 2018, however, warm conditions continued with early blooming in June leading to a record early harvest on 5th September. This dry but intensely aromatic classic Gewurztraminer is a natural, non-treated wine and will be very much enjoyed alongside spicy Asian dishes as well as smoked salmon and strong cheeses.
