Periodically I find that I need to remind myself how much I enjoy sipping really good Gewürztraminer. It’s an aromatic wine grape variety – one of the 18 Classic Noble Grapes – with fruity flavors ranging from grapefruit in less ripe versions to lychee and pineapple in Gewürztraminer that is more ripe. It is particularly good to drink with exotic foods like Indian, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, and South Asian cuisines.
Jean-Baptiste Adam Les Natures Gewürztraminer ($17) from Alsace in France is an organic wine (vin biologique) from a winery that dates back to 1614 – the oldest in Alsace. In 1999 the winery started a shift to organic production, and in 2003 began producing biodynamic wines like this one.
Jean-Baptiste Adam Les Natures Gewürztraminer is a juicy, easy-drinking off dry wine with floral aromatics and hints of apricot, honeysuckle and ripe pear, with a spicy and flinty stone underpinning. Simply put, there is a lot to love about this awesome Alsatian beauty in a bottle. Stock up.
