$15, 5 stars, 90 points, alsace, france, gewurztraminer, muscat, pinot gris, riesling, Sylvaner
Pale lemon colored with medium viscosity legs (13.5% ABV). The nose has peach, lemon, lime curd, papaya, pineapple, ginger, white flowers, orange blossom and grapefruit. Quite a layered set of aromas! The palate is dry with medium acidity and a medium body. The exotic and citrus aromas are confirmed on the palate with a touch of bitterness but no ginger. The florals are feint but present. I start to get lychee on the mid palate from the Gewürztraminer. This wine also blends in Sylvaner, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Muscat- the Noble grapes of Alsace. It is a refreshing yet multi-layered wine that has a crisp, medium length finish. It will go beautifully with our garlic Scampi but I would also pair it with salads, grilled salmon or some charcoal chicken. It’s well worth the $15 price point and gets 90 points and 5 stars from me. Stock up for summer y’all. Salut….
