"Wiptal". Dead sexy nectar, enhanced by the traditional Alsatian dish 'Whatever leftovers I could scrounge together in the fridge'

Sensational example of what Alsace is all about. If you don’t know the power of Alsace, this will let you experience it at its highest form.

Aromas of the sea. Burnt orange and grapefruit zest, meyer lemon, salt, jasmine, honeycomb, green and dried herbs, hint of ginger. Amazing.

This wine conjures a specific setting for me: just-chilled, with pork sausages, next to a fireplace, snow falling outside. It has just enough sugar to make this luscious if you're drinking it as a dryish white. The flavors are exotic and almost flamboyant with fresh peaches, fresh lemon zest, and more subdued but rich candied orange and bitter grapefruit peels. There's a hint at some non-fruit savoriness--is it smokiness?--that makes me want to explore what one of these with 5-10 year of age is like.
