Alsace: Gewürztraminer 2007

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.

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...!

Thanks for your feedback. We love Charles schleret's Gewürztraminer which (btw) Christies wine school show as their example of the genre. We'll ensure that we don't run out!

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.

Beautiful age-worthy wine, tending towards off-dry mid palate but finishing dry. Perfect with Asian food.

What others think of this wine...

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. (Tasted 3rd May 2012).
