2001 Schleret Gewurtztraminer

I love Alsace wines, and the 2001 Charles Schleret Gewurtztraminer did not disappoint. Golden hued and very aromatic, this wine showed a plethora of pleasing aromas – white flowers, vanilla, honey, apricot, lychee, and buttery caramel. Lemon as well. Absolutely stunning. On the palate this off-dry/sweet wine coated the palate with enticing flavours of lemon meringue. Elegant, balanced, heavenly. I have no idea what I served this with, but it didn’t work. My suggestion – don’t serve it with anything. Simply bask in its glory...tied for my highest scoring white wine ever.
14% alcohol
Score: 18/20

Price: C$29.60 (SAQ)
