Lots of orange peel; not bone dry but not cloyingly sweet, either; medium acidity. More "buttery" and less "toasty" than I'm used to from American Pinot Gris. Ok, but I think I prefer the drier Alsace wines.

Bright golden color, honeysuckle and pear with a little PEZ in the nose. Nice medium mouthfeel with flavors of baked apple, apricot, and melon with flint leading the ever so slightly bitter acids that trail brightly on.

With classic Gewrztraminer flavors of litchi, rose and spice, this wine also retains a sense of grace in the hot '03 vintage. Well-balanced and silky, with a moderate finish. Drink now.(WS)

Domaine Schlumberger Gewurztraminer Fleur /05 Lush, juicy, full-bodied Gewurztraminer. Fills the mouth with the ripe fruit characterisitic of 2003. An ideal wine for cheese, sausages, pork and spicy foods.

Domaine Schlumberger Pinot Blanc Alsace Intense floral and lemony scents. Fresh yet full and soft with good acidity. Morrell customers love it! It is our best selling Pinot Blanc ever.

Winemaker's Notes:

Probably Alsace's most famous wine, the Traminer came to us from the north of Italy and dates from the 16th century. The Gewurztraminer (literally spicy or musky Traminer) is a selection of the most fragrant Traminers and became known as Gewurztraminer towards 1950. The Selection de Grains Nobles (an appellation since 1984) are wines, from old vines, made from over-ripe grapes picked several weeks after harvesting. More concentrated than the Vendanges Tardives, they are fine sweet wines which keep a certain freshness and natural acidity which give them an absolutely unique flavour. Cuvee Anne is a rare, mythical wine which is still hugely popular. The 2000 vintage is astonishingly elegant, and revives the tradition of the domaine's fine sweet wines. Botrytis leaves its mark very discreetly and promises to make the wine age slowly and have very good ageing potential.
