About Willm 2018 Gewurztraminer Reserve, Alsace
A unique grape variety that reaches it's full potential in Alsace. It's often described as having a nose like rose petals and lychee, and this lush selection from Willm matches that description with a spicy note that's extremely refreshing.
This classic Gewurztraminer is 100% Hand harvested and softy pressed. It then spends 4-6 weeks in controlled fermentation in stainless steel. The final wine is then matured on the fine lees for another 2 to 3 months prior to bottling.
Wine & Spirits Magazine scored this 93 points and designated it a "Best Buy". They said "The wet spring and hot summer of 2018 brought this gewurztraminer to a heightened state of generosity. This is not a complex, long-lived wine. It’s just remarkably healthy. Having returned to this bottle for three days, taken in by its refreshing cut of acidity, its stony minerality and bright herbal notes of lemon verbena and thyme, I finally gave up and just wrote, “Ooof, that’s good.” It’s brisk, bright, generous and floral, with a meadow freshness.
