Moelleux, is the term that fits the bill. Herby nose, Sweet, but still full of the typical gewurtztraminer flavours. Like lychee, apricot. Nice bottle.

Medium lemon color with an intense nose of petrol, wet stone, white peach, lemon and toast. Quite dry with with a fruity impression of sweetness. High acidity, medium bodied with 13.5% abv. On the palate, lemon, white peach, blossom, green apple and hone. Long Finish. Though it lacks a bit of intensity it is a very good wine.

Waxy, oily, tart lemon, and lots of wet stone. Ripping acidity.

Delicious, have not had Shlumberger in a while and this one was drier then I recall the GCs being. White peach and citrus, touch of petrol. Excellent value..

Very appealing mix of honey'd tropical fruit and sweet floral notes. A fullness to the attack but acidity really washes through, slightly off balance at the mo but plenty of character & promise. Prickly citrus fruit on the finish. Cellar

Butternut squash, halibut, bitter greens, salmon ...I don't think there's a food this wine can't compliment.

Fine Rieslings Night

Poured from Magnum.

Elegant aromas of flowers, bee wax. Noticeable saline minerality. Balanced medium (+) acidity. Good and classic example of Alsace Riesling.

Single vineyard wine from Kessler which is among 51 Grand cru vineyards of Alsace.

Pears and green apple on the nose, bitting acidity and minerality on the plate and a long dry finish with a touch of sweetness that helps to round out the outstandingly high acid structure.

Absolutely great. On nose sharp some citrus. Clean. Great acidity and perfectly balanced. Tropical and white fruits. Some sulphur, decant it or leave open early to open up. Amazing wine.
