Albert Boxler 2014 Gewurztraminer ReserveIn Fine Spirits
Deep yellow with golden highlights. The deep-pitched nose is dominated by lemon curd, Mirabelle and smoky bacon. Thick, sweet and opulent but not heavy, displaying a floral quality to the yellow plum, orange oil and grapefruit jelly flavors, and showcasing a growing spiciness on the long finish, which also features tangy bittersweet elements that add a refined note. Boxler made 60 percent less Gewürz than usual this year, and that attention to detail really shows in this beautiful wine.
