2016 Gewurztraminer Beblenheim Domaine Trapet 6x75cl*
France / Alsace
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Has the intense aromatics to go brilliantly with Asian food but also extremely good with powerful cheeses. The Alsatians drink it with their brine-washed Munster, but it is equally at home with rich blue cheeses from Stilton to Roquefort.
Gewurtztraminer can often bludgeon the palate with perfumed Turkish Delight aromatics. The Trapet version seduces more by stealth - certainly with rosewater - yet blended with grape notes, lychees and delicate spice, mirrored on the palate, which refreshed by lime, all set within a rather luscious, silken texture through to a rich, honeyed finish.
