2002 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Sonnenglanz, Domaine Stirn

It takes a winemaker with the skill and dedication of Fabien Stirn in Sigolsheim to make a Gewurztraminer that expresses the terroir as much as the grape variety.

2002 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Sonnenglanz has a complex nose with roses, white , flower and maturation. On the palate, the first impression says "Sauternes", with some botrytis, honey, some sweetness and razorsharp acidity. Then, a superb and stunning minerality develops. The taste lasts for minutes. A World Class wine. Ex cellar price: €10.
