Gewurz Traminer 2016 Grand Cru Kessler (Sweet)
Vinous by Ian d’Agata 94/100
"Vivid pale golden-yellow. Enticing aromas of mango, papaya, lime, sweet spices and lemon verbena. Big, rich and long, this pretty wine offers lovely balance and hints of crystallized ginger and bitter orange marmalade on the finish. This wine is a standout thanks to its vibrant but harmonious acidity (there is lots of freshness here for such a big wine) that really helps keep the sugar in check; that recognized, it still tastes like a sweet wine (71 g/L residual sugar and 4.2 g/L total acidity) and will match best with hearty white meat dishes, aged cheeses and desserts (in other words, not your usual dry white wine fare). Another thing to like is that it is not especially high in alcohol (12.5%). This wine’s complexity is probably also due to the late harvest (on November 2) and extended hang time."
in harmony with blue cheese or fruit pies
