Henri Ehrhart Alsace Grand Cru Kaefferkopf 2013 Gewürztraminer (91 points) was approximately $20, but was gifted by my Swedish friends.
Appearance was a deep glossy gold color.
Wow! Fantastic perfumed aromas of citronella (while cold), with citrus, Frankincense, a hint of petrol, and floral aromas as this Gewürztraminer warmed.
Medium-bodied with fair acidity, satin textured, and complex waxing and waning flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished long on ginger notes, a touch of apricot, and a substantial 13% alcohol.
Paired well with my Asian cuisine, but faltered with my vanilla ice-cream and blueberry pie.
This was a dry white wine, though others had assumed it would be a tad sweet.
