This was served during my annual WWC hosting. Typical format of sparkler, three whites, four reds, one dessert, all served blind.
Marcel Deiss’s son is the winemaker. 50 Pinot Gris/40 Gewurtztraminer/ 10 Riesling. 100% whole cluster pressed for the Riesling and Gewurtztraminer, partially de-stemmed Pinot Gris. Macerated for 9 months in different amphorae.
I don’t know how you attach a score to this. Undoubtedly an orange wine, which I normally don’t drink. In color, it’s almost a pink tinge of orange. Aromatically, this could be Alsatian Muscat. Incredibly floral with a perception of sweetness. Strawberries romanoff, kiwi, orange blossom up front but the fruit fades to a more mineral/less sweet profile with great acidity. Very unique and worth seeking out more. — 4 months ago
Went well with food. Smokey, savory Gewurtztraminer. Dry. Extremely aromatic. — 5 years ago
Light gold color. Blend of Riesling (33%), Gewurtztraminer ( 64%) and Pinot Gris (3%). Aromas and flavors of orange, white flowers, lychee, rose petals, pot pourri. Also a nice spicy note. Beautiful texture and a long and creamy finish. Just a touch of RS. Medium bodied. Lovely balance and quite refreshing. Very easy drinker. — a year ago
Loaded with aromas, rose, lychee, honey. Almost tastes like perfume with the tang on the sides of the tongue. The aroma leaps out of the glass. There is no hiding that this is a Gewurtztraminer. Enjoyable even if it isn’t for everyone. — 2 years ago
Delicious, balanced Gewurtztraminer. As sweet as expected for a spatlese, but wonderful with a spicy Bangladeshi chicken korma. Great value. — 2 years ago
Dark yellow color. Love the honey lychee peach melon notes to this wine. Bold smooth. Another really good Alsace Gewurtztraminer — 2 years ago
Amazing example of Gewurtztraminer exhibiting lots of oak, and a bright, floral bouquet. The 2011 is truly special. — 4 years ago
