There is a good deal of gewurztraminer at work, aromatically, on the latest Noble Blend, but the other elements...

This wine is consistently a delight.

Made in the Alsace Edelzwicker or “noble blend” style, it’s an amalgam of Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Auxerrois and Schoenberger. While those first three can make stunning single-varietal wines, this blend is a stunner.

Nose of honey, white flowers, chamomile, white pepper, star anise, lychee, luscious pear.

On the palate, almond and spicy minerality run through the fruit-laden mid-palate. Unctuous mouth-feel, with a slightly oily long finish. Complex.

I’d like to see how this might develop in a few years - but always finish my stock!
