2011 Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive, Trimbach*
France / Alsace
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
This wine speaks for itself and makes a great aperitif. It goes well with foie gras or fruity rich dessert such as a peach tart tatin or a steamed syrup pudding. This wine can also be paired with blue cheeses and rich, spicy Asian dishes.
One whiff of the Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive and your sense of smell is instantly pervaded with ham hock, celery root, brown spices, mint and honey. Primary juices include rose petals and spice and a dusty botrytis character to follow. This is a lusciously sweet and complex wine.
