Dopff au Moulin

Alsace AOC Gewürztraminer 2012

During the week we decided to check out the Sale Curry House which is a BYO spot. One of my typical Indian cuisine matches is Gewürtztraminer. I try pick one which is not too sweet, this one was a 4/10 on the dry-sweet scale on the back label. You’ll find most Gewürtz (and sometimes Rieslings too) will have a sweetness scale on the back label.

This 2012 @dopffaumoulin Gewürtz comes from the Alsace region in France and I picked it up for about $18. I have to admit it went pretty well with the onion bhaji, samosas and curry we had.

In the glass it’s a pale lemon colour. A perfume full of sweet florals/canided flowers and hints of mango/lychee come through on the nose. While in the mouth it’s off dry with spiced pear, lemon and a hint of rose water coming through. It matched the spice of our Indian cuisine well 🍛🥂

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine #tctastingnotes

#winestudio#winestudio#winestudio 2012 @AnkidaRidge #Pinot Noir, Virginia #VAwine. 12.9 abv. A stunning example of how site selection and elevation can create a wine with harmony from an unsuspecting place and a grape that is über difficult. Aromas of violets & smoke mixed with cranberry, tart cherry and pomegranate intertwined with cedar and spice box. Amazing acidity on a long, soft, silky finish. #wine #sommelier #nomnom
