Gewurtraminer Grand Cru Furstentum Selection De Grains Nobles 2011

Grape Variety: 
100% Gewurtraminner
Tasting Note: 
Bright yellow-gold. A violet note lifts raspberry, mango, sandalwood and bergamot tea aromas on the complex, powerful nose. Remarkably clean, fresh and lively considering the staggering richness to its creamy, almost dehydrated yellow fruit and sweet spice flavors. This wonderfully glyceral gewurztraminer stays tangy on the palate, thanks to the uncanny acid thrust to its creamy, honeyed flavors. Obviously marked more by passerillage than by noble rot, in contrast to the 2010.
