2017 J. Hofstatter Kolbenhof Gewurztraminer Alto Adige Trentino-Alto Adige Italy
The Kolbenhof Gewurztraminer is characterized by sumptuous fruit. Deep golden yellow in color, the wine offers a nose reminiscent of ripe apricot and peach intermingled with exotic fruits such as lychee, mango and passion fruit. The fruit characteristics follow through on the palate, which is full-bodied, luscious but dry, and cut by vibrant, firm acidity. The finish is elegant, dry and aromatic.
This wine is on its own, though it is perfect to accompany shellfish, oysters or foie gras, sophisticated fish dishes and asian inspired food.
