Food Pairings for Vin d'Alsace A.Zirnhelt Gewurztraminer
I bought this bottle of wine for £5 from a shop in North London that was closing down. Alsace is an AOC producing mainly white wines in the east of France by the German border.Indeed,at some periods of history it was part of Germany and therefore the wines are not dissimilar to those on the other side of the Rhine. AOC rules dictate a tall thin bottle called a 'flute d'Alsace'. This is the only French AOC where the grape type has to appear on the bottle. The gewürztraminer grape is believed to hjave originated in Northern Italy and to be a mutation of the savignin grape grown in the Jura region of France.I have not managed to find out much about A.Zirnhelt but I think it is a negociant house.I started my bottle last night with my supper of ham salad and I did enjoy it I would describe it as off-dry rather than dry and there is plenty of fruit there but there is also a noticeable spicy aftertaste as well.It certainly has a lot of flavour going on.
