Gewurztraminer rises to greater heights when allowed to ripen under perfect conditions to late harvest levels of natural sugar. Bright acidity remains to balance out the exquisite richness achieved during late fall hang-time. This gorgeous rendition of Sélection de Grains Nobles carries 10% residual sugar that is so perfectly balanced by brilliant acidity that it never seems overly sweet. Unctuous and thick in texture, this is amber liquid gold.
