'En Famille' Reserve Gewürztraminer 2013

An absolute show-stopper! THIS is what graceful, elegant Alsatian Grand Cru-inspired Gewürztraminer is all about. 

RECENT TASTING NOTES: There's rich, and then there's Bill Gates rich - this vintage is definitely in the upper strata! Aromas of honey, lychee, and rose petal exude from the from the glass as if on steroids. It's a perfume worthy of Cleopatra and brings life to the phrase 'nectar of the gods'. Spiciness kicks in on the palate with coriander, nutmeg and white pepper tasted alongside turkish delight, grapefruit and cantaloupe flavours. Age has added a real 'wow factor' to this unctuous, rich, elegant wine.

SUGGESTED PAIRING: Pâtes and cheese - the stinkier, the better. This will definitely hold up to a heavy dish dripping in bacon fat, but would be equally at place with a fragrant Persian-spiced vegetarian meal.
