2021 Kientzler Gewurztraminer
A fine and fresh and delicately perfumed Gewurztraminer with restraint and lovely fine acidity buffering its richness. Intense and exotic flavors that keep a very fine fruity flavour. The palate is soft, dense and tasty while withholding a dry character. The spicy profile and fine grip give length, elegance and vivacity. Fine, elegant and restrained.
13.7% Alc/Vol; 8.9 g/l RS; 6.2 g/l TA.
'One of the most talented Winemakers in Alsace…..he has Riesling and Gewürztraminer growing in prime sites and it is what he manages to do with these that ranks his wines among the very best in Alsace. Although his generic Riesling has great class and finesse, his Grand Cru Geisberg and Grand Cru Osterberg are very much finer. The Geisberg is the riper and more opulent, with a wisp of smokiness to the fruit, the Osterberg is more classic and flinty, requiring longer in bottle.' The Wines of Alsace, Tom Stevenson.
“This estate has established itself for many years as one of the Alsatian references, especially on the Geisberg grand cru (which has only four owners).”
— Bettane & Dessauve 2022
“The Geisberg is immense and rivals with the greatest wines of the world.”
