GEWURZTRAMINER RESERVE ALSACE WILLM 2021 DESCRIPTION

Willm’s Gewurztraminer Reserve is a sweet and enveloping interpretation of the great aromatic grape of France. The winery is considered a great reference brand in the world of Alsatian wines, thanks to the centuries-old history that has made it a leader in the production of Gewurztraminer. Located 40 kilometers from Strasbourg, it was already depopulated in America from 1920 when, after the era of American prohibition, it was the first to export its products to the USA. The maison has always focused on the vinification of pure white grapes, with a strong attachment to Gewurztraminer, considered probably the reference grape of the territory. An example is this Reserve with a rich, soft and pleasantly sweet face, which follows the most exuberant, aromatic and tropical side of the starting varietal. A wine that also shows great versatility in the kitchen, because with its pleasing sweetness and sensual soul it lends itself to tasty and spicy combinations, such as Thai food, oriental dishes or ethnic cuisine. Try it also on a nice board of blue cheeses, obtained from marbling techniques, or on light and delicate desserts, such as fruit cakes or dry pastry.

Gewurztraminer Willm comes from a careful selection of the homonymous grapes, from vines located between 200 and 400 meters above sea level in the heart of Alsace. The soils have a variable composition of different formation, rich in minerals and limestone. The grapes ripen perfectly thanks to the strong temperature differences between night and day. After manual harvesting, the grapes are first destemmed and then gently squeezed to obtain a pure and clear juice. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature. It follows the aging for about 2-3 months in steel.

The Reserve Gewurztraminer Willm shines in the glass of a pale straw yellow color with greenish accents. The nose is a riot of citrus and exotic fruit, where pineapple, passion fruit and lime drive floral and mineral sensations, sweet and spicy. The taste is unraveled with its exuberant and enveloping aroma, a sustained residual sugar and a tonic and streamlined freshness. Sweet, but not cloying, fresh, but not acidic, aromatic, but not tiring, enveloping, but not excessively soft: a white that conquers for richness and elegance!
