Alsace Gewürztraminer 2018

Light golden yellow. Jasmine, spice and funk notes in nose. Lovely integrated honey and spice flavors, off dry, jasmine tea and cough syrup finish. Good acidity. I prefer my Gewurtztraminers dryer, but for off dry this is complex and tasty. — 11 hours ago

Alsace Pinot Gris 2016

Lovely companion to our very Alsace-inspired winter meal. Just a tad off-dry. Slightly oily mid palate but balanced with acidity and freshness. — 16 hours ago

Tradition Alsace Riesling 1639

This unique bottle of Riesling from Hugel (tradition) from my cellar is bringing back some old memories from Karlsruhe! This 1997 was absolutely perfect on a duck with an orange sauce. — 19 days ago

Wow this you still have this bro? It must be orange in colour itself. I remember going to buy it from the producer

Yes we bought it together! It was amazing really after all these years. Orange color almost like a yellow wine from Jura.

EARL Ginglinger-Fix

Alsace AOC Gewürztraminer 2014

Can’t remember if this is my second or third bottle of this over the last few years but it never disappoints. Nose isn’t shy with the musky, earthy, lychee nut and sweet pear scents. Sweet fruit cocktail on the first hit, but then some nice minerality and acids enter on the off dry finish. Amazing for $15. — 7 days ago

Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre Gewürztraminer 2008

9.2

January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

Delicious and shocked it was gewürztraminer. It was sweet/botrytis like, but not overly so. I didn’t pick up lychee or honeyed pear that I usually do with this grape. Touch of petrol. My guess was Alsace Pinot Gris in vindage tardives style. At least I got the country and region.
