2016 Albert Mann Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1355724 90 points Wine Spectator

 Bright and well-knit, this expressive Gewürztraminer shows lots of the grape's grapefruit zest, crunchy white peach and white pepper notes, set in a racy, mineral-driven frame. Drink now through 2023. (AN)  (5/2018)

Vinous

 Bright pale golden-yellow. Enticing smoky grilled pork, ginger beef, cinnamon and grapefruit nectar on the very Gewürz nose. Then flavors similar to the aromas and - though not especially complex - delicious and very accessible. Finishes medium-long and off-dry but with good mineral tang (17 g/L residual sugar and 4.7 g/L total acidity). Lovely, flavorful and characterful Gewürz. 13.5% alcohol. (ID)  (4/2018)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gewurztraminer

- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gew├╝rztraminer 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.
