A classic, complex Alsace Gewürztraminer with a musk spice and Turkish delight flavour profile. Off-dry and oily. Deep, burnished gold. Pronounced musky, honied, Turkish delight, rose and nut notes. Very exotic. Vague hint of lychee. Medium (20 g/L?) sweetness and moderately refreshing acidity. Crystal fruit, Turkish delight and a mineral undertow. Oily full body. Spicy musk emerges from mid-palate to the long, long finish.
