Alsace Gewürztraminer

Costa Rawa Gewürztraminer Orange 2020

Grippy, tea-like orange, kinda like a flat Arnold Palmer or something. “Forty year old vines planted over sandy, alluvial soils in Ammerschwihr. The fruit was fermented as whole bunches for a fortnight before being pressed off to vats for a short élevage.” — 8 days ago

Grande Reserve Rittersberg Alsace Pinot Noir 2013

Vintage 2013 | Half transparant colour, redbrown rim. I smelled with closed eyes and thought: Gewürztraminer! So: a lot of spices. Very perfumed wine. Rondeur with a powerfull body, good acidity, longing for a new sip of the wine, good effort. — 17 hours ago

Domaine Gross

Neuweg Alsace Gewürztraminer 2020

Got some surprise flowers for the bae.

Highly recommended from the new wine shop called Cool Wines, highlighting naturals, SoHo/TriBeCa.

I love the sweet fragrance of aromatic Guwerztraminers. And this just that — wildflower honey, potent pea blossom, and the subtlety of lavender.

Wow, packs a one, two punch of honey, cherries, tangerines, and melon. Dripping with fruit-soaked sips. This ones got some typa energy.

Domaine Kumpf et Meyer

Restons Nature Pinot Noir

Mescal, cherry 🍒 and molasses. A stupid wine. Never tasted anything like it. Super fun. My co-tasters thought this was smoke tainted. But ‘alas’ Elsass is quite wet. 13% dry. Super mouthfeel what a trip! If you don’t get this is smokey please stop tasting wines! I guess I am bored and start to go ‘aux naturelles’. — 3 days ago

Réserve Alsace Gewürztraminer 2016

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. — 7 days ago


Grand Cru Zotzenberg Gewürztraminer 2017

Post- drinking notes. Love this. So classic. Only qualification is that I’d love it if more Alsace producers went the Trimbach/Hugel route for Gewurz and made it a tad drier. Still so nice. See prior notes for more specifics. — 18 days ago

On the other side of the border in Baden (and also the Pfalz) they do just that Dry Gewürztraminer. But there are very few winemakers who do that and often in minuscule amounts for family and friends (mostly).
