I should have read the reviews before buying, esp alerted to the "off dry" comments. I buy Alsace gewurtz because Alsace does a dry style. In my opinion, gewurtz is meant to be fermented dry - the German off-dry style for this grape doesn't do it justice (just as bone dry rieslings fail that grape's potential). This wine undermines the Alsace brand in that regard, making me wary of trying unknown brands. It was outright sweet rather than "off dry" with exaggerated fruit that was uncharacteristic. Expensive patio sipping at best.
