Enjoy an Alsace late harvest wine on its own
Gewurztraminer wines are found in Germany, Alsace (France), the United States, and several other countries. The wine flavors include grapefruit, litchi, vanilla, minerals, smoke, and spices (Gewürz is German for perfumed), did you notice the German spelling? These wines tend to age well.
Gewurztraminer wines start at about $10-12 and quickly increase in price. The sweet late-harvest versions are likely to cost much more. The spicy Florimont Grand Cru at about $20 is a good buy with its honey, nutmeg, pear flavors. For a couple of dollars more try the Hugel Gewurztraminer Alsace which tastes of lychee, apricot, and citrus zest. A fine choice in the $35 range is the Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim, from Domaine Zind Humbrecht, a rich full bodied wine with lychee and rose petal aromas. You can age it for a few years.
