An elegant wine that is already showing some age, at least in its aromas. The Mambourg vineyard, at Sigolsheim, with its limestone soil, gives this wine a steely mineral character but also good richness. It should age well over 5-10 years. Imported by W.J. Deutsch & Sons.
Peaches and honey dominate the flavors of this full wine. It has some sweetness, with acidity and a touch of smokiness. Likely to age for five years. Imported by W. J. Deutsch & Sons.
An intense wine, its spice finely integrated with a more fruity character. It has the classic Gewürztraminer lychee flavor but this is balanced with acidity, ripe baked apple and mineral structure.
