2004 Vinum Cellars G2 KA-POW Late Harvest Gewurztraminer
A while back we reviewed St. Gisbertus Eiswein–a $10 bottle from Aldi–in that review I said it was alright but you can do far better for a few dollars more. When I wrote that, this is the wine I had in mind. Our local wine shop has this available for $12 a bottle.
Floral notes with pineapple and citrus on the nose.
Apricot, honey, a hint of grapefruit, a touch of pineapple, a zing of orange zest, and a suggestion of flowers - perhaps rose water - on the palate....certainly sweet, a bit syrupy, but a nice hit of acid that gives it a phenomenal balance (for a dessert wine).
If we had a cellar I’d own a case of this. I cannot recommend this one strongly enough.
