Tasting Note:

The top quality, but not Grand Cru, Altenbourg vineyard, sitting just below GC Furstentum, habitually produces some of our favourite Weinbach Gewurztraminers – with the complexity of the Grand Cru but often a touch less weight. Here there’s a glorious fresh honey and pomelo note, peach, fresh tea leaf, and by way of a touch of botrytis that made its way into the blend, complex rich sweet notes of apricot and quince, and then spice and roses on the finish. There’s a fine seam of minerality at the core which lends an elegance to the fruity and fluid but not cloying voluptuousness of this beautiful cuvee.
