Domaine Paul Blanck Alsace Gewurztraminer 2003

Color: Light Straw
Nose: Very aromatic, peach, pear, chamomile, river stones, cinnamon
Palate: Soft, round, and juicy. Delivers on what the nose promises, with the addition of lychee and peach syrup. Sweetness and a clean acidity co-mingle towards the finish, along with a march of pumpkin pie spice and stark chalkiness.
Finish: Tapered dryness, with mild with spice-box notes.

A complex nose leading to an easy-drinking, food-friendly-wine. Dry in style – no cloying sugars, just the natural sweetness of the fruit. The stony minerality is upfront and even a little aggressive to my tastes, but fades a bit with time in the glass. An excellent guest to bring to the local Chinese or Thai BYO restaurant. Or takeout…
