ABOUT THE WINE
Next wine ... Well, this one blew me away last year when I first tried it. Made from a small producer in Mamborg, I tried this wine with some friends. Whilst it's an off-dry style, which means that it's got a little bit of sweetness, it's got the most amazing, pure Gewürztraminer nuances and flavours and aromatics. Gewürztraminer is a beautifully aromatic white variety, and this wine just oozes the spice and all those beautiful aromatics, pretty aromatics that Gewürztraminer can have on the nose. Then, you put it in your mouth and it's got just that sweetness at the front, but has all that spiciness and those beautiful Gewürztraminer fruit flavours flowing through. But at the same time ... it's got that nice bit of richness in the middle palate, and then the finish is very elegant with really, really well-balanced acid. It's a really, really beautiful wine. Every time I've shown this to people, they've been absolutely blown away with the purity of the Gewürztraminer aromatics and flavours that this wine has.
