Gewürztraminer is another one of my favorite white grapes. Spicy in a cozy baking spice way, intensely fruity, yet refreshingly dry and brimming with vivid minerality, it can make for quite an expressive, friendly, sassy glass. Bottles from Alsace have a tendency to be above the $20 mark, so when I happened upon Willm Réserve Gewurztraminer 2010 at a wallet friendly price, I was thrilled. Alsace Willm Estate was founded in 1896 by the Willm family. In 1930 when Prohibition was repealed, they were the first Alsace producer to export wines to the US. Employing a harmonizing blend of traditional and modern techniques they have built an international reputation for crafting wines that exhibit balance, elegance and style. The Willm philosophy is “to offer delicious fruit driven wines, with lively flavours, classic of the Alsace style”.
Bottled by Les Vignerons Réunis
