Product Description:

Youthfulness in every sense. This wine has an excellent smart, joyful, sparkling fresh and dynamic clear pastel yellow colour with pale pistachio and matcha green tea highlights accompanied with rich and lively legs. The nose is both precise and dizzying, with all of the expression of an authentic Gewurztraminer, full of aroma and exuberance and as light-footed and sprightly as a ballerina. It has a refined set of aromas including hawthorn blossom, freesia, lily, tropical fruit, persimmon, mango and spices such as ginger, Szechuan pepper; all of this with a perfectly refined equilibrium. On the palate we find a harmony that is in keeping with its full yet light touch and the after-taste is smooth, aromatic, scented and refreshing inviting you to keep drinking. This wine should be consumed straight away to make the most of its typical pure and precise Gewurztraminer youthfulness. Ideal for aperitifs of teatime, of just for drinking for the sheer pleasure of enjoying a good wine. Goes well with Moroccan, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean or Mexican dishes that combine sweet and sour, spices, chillies. Spiced game of fish terrines. - Domaine
