De Colmar, Gewurztraminer 2021

(2023) Let's start with a pedantic note: Gewürztraminer, with an umlaut, is the German spelling, so not necessary on this French Gewurztraminer. Down to business, and what we have is an Alsace wine, off-dry, and tinged with pink/bronze as is typical for this variety which has skins that mature to a deep blush red. The nose has the hallmark rose petal and exotic spice perfume, but it is relatively subtle here. In the mouth the wine is quite full textured, and has a peach juice and yellow plum character to the mid-palate, before gentle lemon acidity pushes through on the finish. Always a banker with Chinese or other spicy and aromatic cuisines. Watch the video for more information.
