Gewurtztraminer 2016 Alsace - Domaine Vincent Stoeffler


Gewurtztraminer is a famous local grape producing very fruity, slightly sweet and spicy white wines with low acidity - they are definitely unusual wines! This one has an explosive nose of ripe mango, yellow peach and papaya with delicate notes of rose and chilli. It is slightly sweet and has a super-long finish. Very special, very Gewurtztraminer!

87/100 "Earthy ripeness of peach and yellow plum abounds. The palate is rounded and medium sweet, suggesting jellied and crystallized fruit confections with an appetizingly tart edge. Drink soon." (previous vintage)

89/100 "The Gewurztraminer is very clear and open-hearted on the elegant nose which is dominated by the typical lychee and rose petal aromas. On the palate the wine is slightly sweet (20 grams of residual sugar) but also mineral and fresh and very well balanced. The finish is slightly salty and really stimulating. This is a very digestible Gewurztraminer for the next 5 to 10 years." (previous vintage)
