Domaine St Remy Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Hengst

75 cl

Lovely fresh, rich wine. A truly high quality expression of this aromatic Alsation varietal. Gilbert & Gaillard note that 'The Grand Cru of Hengst is an exceptional site for growing Gewurztraminer. Facing south/south-east, the steep slope is a conglomeration of shale and limestone soils.'

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Intense nose marrying exotic fruits and floral notes
Palate On the palate, freshness counterbalances richness whilst the finish delivers more of the same aromatic typicity coupled with good length. A lovely, seductive wine showing real expression.
