*10W* 2016 Vignoble du Reveur "La Vie en Rose" Gewurztraminer (Alsace, FR)
Region: Alsace, France
The name of this wine (meaning "Life in Pink") may refer to the rosy-pink color of the grape used to produce it, but it also alludes to the pronounced aroma of rose petals that greets the nose. Biodynamically produced by Mateo Deiss on the family's property, this elegant, fully bodied Gewurtz is a joy to drink. An oily texture joins notes of apple cider on the palate, culminating in a lightly sweet finish that lingers on and on.
