Peach and pear on the nose have a touch of honey. That honeyed, juicy nature comes into full view on the rounded but fresh palate. It's a joyful, medium-sweet wine with seemingly endless fruit.
Winery
Its colour is intense, yellow with light golden highlights. The pink almost red colour of the grapes naturally influences the colour of the wine. A rich and exuberant aromatic palette characterizes Gewurztraminer. The bouquet is intense and complex, offering an explosion of exotic fruits (lychee, passion fruit, pineapple, mango), flowers (notably rose), citrus (orange peel) and spices (gingerbread, cinnamon, peppermint, cloves and pepper). Frequent aromas of honey and ripe fruits. The most aromatic wine, very floral (rose petal), exotic fruit cocktail, lytchee, spices like coriander seeds, confied ginger, very long finish.

Winery Alsace Willm

Region: Alsace

For lovers of fine white and rosé wines, there are few regions in the world quite as good as France's Alsace. The region itself is a particularly fascinating one, as it has long been fought over by France and Germany, resulting in a culture and wine industry which is something of a blend of the two countries. Wines in Alsace are almost all white, although there are more wineries now producing the pale red or pinkish Pinot Noir wines which the region is also renowned for. Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Muscat are also grown in huge quantities across the Alsace, and most of the region's wines are made from these varietals. Overall, Alsace is a highly productive region of France, with over a hundred million liters of wine being produced annually from the nine permitted grape varietals the region grows.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
