Gustave Lorentz, Réserve Gewurztraminer 2014, Alsace, France
Tasting Note: A gewurztraminer with body and flavor intensity.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a pronounced and aromatic nose of lychee, orange citrus, yellow pear and some notes of grass.
On the palate the dry-to-off-dry, medium-plus-bodied gewurztraminer has a creamy texture with aromas on the nose continuing to the palate as flavors supported by medium acidity.
The wine is medium plus in flavor-intensity, flavor concentration and finish.
The gewurztraminer is very good in quality because of its long finish and complexity.
Bottle Note: This aromatic wine has a pronounced floral (roses) and tropical fruit bouquet. Its highly perfumed style makes it the perfect accompaniment to smoked fish, ethnic food (Thai, Chinese, Indian, etc.), spicy foods and full-flavored cheeses.
