Wine Tasting: Alsatian Gewurztraminer

Wine: Gustave Lorentz Gewurztraminer Reserve 2001 ($12.99 at our local wine store)

Front taste: sweet, full of orange flower, but not cloying. Thick mouth feel from the residual sugar. Initially some chalky mineral, but that dissipated over the course of drinking the whole bottle. Very robust fruit, peaches and pears especially.

Mid taste: syrupy, but in a good way. Floral sweetness that continued the fore taste, with honey overtones. Nice sense of peaches.

After taste: clean acidity that made the wine feel surprisingly dry. Taste of peaches and pears transitioning from the mid taste to the after taste.

One thought on “Wine Tasting: Alsatian Gewurztraminer

  1. No matter how much this sounds like Andrea Immer’s “Simply Wine”, I’ll bet she doesn’t drink “Three Buck Chuck” anything.

    Isn’t $12.99 a bit of a reach for a “Three Buck Chuck” aficionado?
