Cave de Turckheim Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Vendanges Tardives 2004

Member Review by Grape Juice:

Predominant notes of honey, rose, and lychee are well-matched with highlights of ginger spice, apple and passionfruit. Also there was a curious, but very pleasant grassy quality. On the palate there was a hint of sweetness, honey, dried pineapple, and the characteristics on the nose replayed. The warm finish and very good length made it oddly suited to winter sipping. The wine was wonderfully balanced, with a round, creamy touche bouche until late in the palate, where it thinned out to reveal the drier nature of this gewurz. The 2004 Reserve from Turckheim was a superb example of a off-dry gewurztraminer, and reminded me somewhat of a far less sugary, subtler version of a well-done vidal icewine.
