Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives 2018 50cl

Concentrated, rich Gewurztraminer !

Presentation

The vintage
A very early harvest with excellent quality and small yields characterize the 2017 vintage.
Following a late spring freeze, the volumes were significantly reduced compared to the 2016 harvest. Excellent weather conditions throughout the summer encouraged full ripeness and the development of ideal acidities needed to create outstanding Alsace wines. Harvest of absolutely perfect grapes began the first week of Sept. In the cellar a few months later, the wines show fabulous, aromatic personalities already. The 2017 vintage will age well so we suggest picking up extra bottles for aging and enjoying in a couple of years.

Very lush and exotic, this is a full-throttle late-harvest Gewurztraminer. Full body, round textured with a rich and not too sweet palate and a lively finish.
Brilliant with foie gras or a honey-based dessert.

"Quite a raisiny nose for this grape, but on the palate, the exotic personality of Gewurztraminer shows through, also rose petals. Full body and round textured with smoky power in the long finish " [+]
