2010 Louis Sipp "Nature'S" Gewürztraminer

SKU #1114193 Wine Enthusiast

 This medium-dry wine layers attractive spice and lychee notes with a soft, warm texture. There's a spring in the stride of this fragrant wine, its acidity adding just the right sharp edge.  (12/ 2012)

K&L Notes

An off-dry wine from organically grown grapes, this Alsacian Gewurztraminer is excellent as a cocktail wine, or with stong cheeses or Asian cuisine. From the winery: "The wine shows a beautiful yellow color with golden tints. On the nose, it is full-bodied, spicy and slightly musky. A complex bouquet, full of character. The palate is ample, powerful with hints of sweetness, but always with good freshness that comes from the presence of chalk in the soils and is sustained by the organic farming approach which gives always wines with more tension and length. The structure on the palate with more freshness and length when compared with the conventional farming wine is the signature of the wines from grapes in organic farming."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gewurztraminer

- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gewürztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Alsace

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
