Gewurztraminer VT, Domaine Trimbach 2002
Medium yellow. Highly spicy, musky, resiny, liqueur-like aromas of mirabelle, citrus zest and cinnamon. Sweet, tactile, chewy and pungent, with superb purity and brightness of fruit for a gewurztraminer from this vintage. Offers an impressive core of spice and lovely lift on the end. This is carrying 80 grams of residual sugar yet conveys a rare lightness for a wine from grapes with potential alcohol of more than 17%.
