Alsace wines

Alsace Gewurztraminer

Probably the most famous of Alsace’s wines, it is instantly recognisable thanks to its exceptionally aromatic personality.

Nose

Gewurztraminer displays a rich, exuberant aromatic palette. A powerful, complex bouquet that explodes with tropical fruit, flowers, citrus and spices. 

Palate

A full-bodied, smooth wine that reveals an exuberant, complex personality. Its density and richness is sustained by an acidity that is, perhaps, less noticeable than in other Alsace Wines. The palate, like the nose, reveals a ravishingly exuberant fruit salad of flavours. 

Complex by nature, exuberant in expression, this is a wine that reveals its versatility when paired with food.
