Cave de Turckheim Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Tradition 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Finely-honed acidity brings this opulent white into lovely balance, enlivening the flavors of lychee, papaya and orange peel. The intensity of the acidity powers you through the additional layers of flint, honey and Chai tea spice, leading to a long, smoke-filled finish...92" WS 07/10

Typical lychee and stone fruit notes; off-dry (drier than other Gewurz I've tasted) with an acidic backbone that may allow a few years bottle aging. At present it's good, but not luscious.

Crisp and refreshing with a lovely mandarin orange note on the nose.

Full medium gold. Exotic aromas and flavors of musky apricot, orange and medicinal herbs; one senses the wine’s firm acidity on the nose. Then spicy, intense and surprisingly dry in the mouth, with a creamy texture leavened by some unabsorbed CO2. This chewy, substantial pinot blanc needs food.

The smell of the sea winds through this full-bodied Pinot Blanc. Pretty peach, apricot, clementine and honeysuckle notes flesh it out, while zesty acidity provides a firm framework. Delicious on its own, but would pair well with seafood. Drink now through 2014.
