A. Zirnhelt Gewürztraminer Vin D’Alsace

A. Zirnhelt Gewurztraminer Vin D' Alsace

A personal favourite. Although ‘Gewurz’ can be made into various styles; aromatic complexity, full body & spiciness are common characteristics. Expect flavours of lychees & roses with some residual grapey-ness. This example is vinified true to the original drier style. Loves to consumed as an aperitif or with Foie Gras.

A. Zirnhelt Riesling Vin D’Alsace

January 7, 2013
A. Zirnhelt Riesling Vin D'Alsace

Update: June 2013: Another 6 months bottle age has turned this offering into a much drier experience with greater savouriness. It’s bone dry. Aromas of freshly sliced lime; the citrus zing showing in the flavour profile via lemony elements typical of Riesling. The acid is refreshing and vibrant, and would mix with – cut through – most oil-based foods. A very juicy wine with a minerally finish, making it more alluring. Yum Yum.
