Pierre Sparr Alsace Gewurztraminer Reserve 2016
Colour: Medium- straw
Nose: Rose pedal, lychee, orange flower water, light honey, faint green tea
Palate: Touch of residual sugar, off-dry. Medium- body, medium- acidity. White flower, chalk, grapefruit
Finish: Medium finish, crushed stone, citrus zest, lemon
A rather textbook example of Alsace Gewurztraminer. The usual aromatic nose of rose pedal, lychee is definitely present, with orange flower water, light honey, and faint suggestion of green tea on the back end. The palate is off-dry, and simple, could do with more acidity, fresh notes of citrus and minerals all the way to the finish. I would drink this within a year or two.
