Gewurztraminer 2015 Grand Cru Pfersigberg
Tasting notes : This wine is typified by its winsome aromas that contain elements of dried roses and spices while evoking exotic fruits like lychees and mango. The final taste which remains in the mouth speaks of the minerality of the limestone marl terroir of Pfersigberg in which it is grown.
