Charles Schléret's signature wine, this Alsace Gewürztraminer is an unashamedly food-orientated wine that is equally at home with creamy Alsatian cuisine or chilli-infused Asian dishes.

Excellent web site excellent service The web site info is quite a change from Robin's articles in Dental Practitioner aons ago
Excellent, full-bodied, fragrant Gewürztraminer.
Excellent efficient service, love the web site - just the right amount of information, interesting selections of "offer" wines - always tempting.
Absolutely stunning Gewurtz. I've bought more expensive, but they aren't as good. Not everyone likes this level of sweetness, but if you do, this is the one. I'm a little concerned about what I will do when you run out of stock...!
Excellent customer service, as always
Friendly, professional and expert.
very well made
Very rapid delivery.
For the price paid all wines are excellent.Price rises over the last few years have put some out of reach.Some wines are not always in stock but you are far better at providing what I want than the wine society can be.
As before, this is a superb wine drunk chilled on a warm summer`s night. How anyone can drink this wine with a curry beats me. It is too good a wine for that. Reasonably priced as well.
Website easy to use and delivery speedy
Beautiful age-worthy wine, tending towards off-dry mid palate but finishing dry. Perfect with Asian food.
I cannot get enough of this ambrosial wine. A geat wine from a great producer. Thank you Yapp Brothers for seeking out this wonderful wine.
Great with Chinese food
Always easy to enjoy this wine for its full flavour, balance and cheerfulness.
Prompt and efficient service - will certainly use again
Wines were fabulous as always from Yapp, totally reliable independant merchants.
I would never spend this amount on supermarket wine.
Always a good tasting with lots of advice available and no pressure to buy
Sarah McCleery in The Oxford Times says:‘I tell you, hand on heart, that it is the first Gewürztraminer I have tried that I wanted to return to for another . . . and another glass. Just brilliant!’
PH (customer review) says:The best Gerwurztraminer I have tasted so far. It is not too sweet and has a lovely fruity bouquet.
Yapp Brothers Staff Review - Jonathan says:Tropical nose with lots of Lychee as well as a touch of Mango and Kiwi. Very aromatic as are all of Schléret’s wines.
Initially on the palate there are mouth filling fruit salad flavours which then develop into a richer more complex body with spicy notes and a slight oily texture (typical for region.)
The finish is fresh and clean with a nice balance of sugar and acidity and it lasts in your mouth.
Overall this is quite a punchy wine in terms of fruit and body and it would hold up well to dishes that have complex flavours. I think a Thai Green Chicken curry would be an interesting match.
