Gorgeous!

I'm a wine lover but not a wine expert. This wine really hit the spot for me today and I am about to order more. I opened it today - on a warm evening outside in the sun (28 May 2020). I am pleased to say it tasted just as good later in the evening while listening to some music indoors. I know that Alsace wines are generally high quality and good value; and this wine lives up to that. An extremely easy drinking wine with a lovely flavour - I don't normally write reviews which shows how much I enjoyed it.

Best example of Gewurztraminer's unique flavour

5 stars

First started Gewurztraminer in the 1970's and have struggled to find a comparable producer since. This fits the bill, to the extent that we've had to ration our consumption. Certainly rich, to be savoured, being full-on fruit (lychee, grape, resinous) with the unique Gewurztraminer overtone, not comparable with anything else. This one stands out against many others, so full marks to Maison Arthur, the Winemaker Nicolas Haeffelin and to the Tesco buyer. Hopefully stocks will continue to be available.

Is this really Gerwurztraminer???

1 stars

I am a big fan of Gewürztraminer and drink it regularly. However, over the last few weeks the bottles I have purchased from Tesco (Hurst Park) have left me puzzled. Although the wine is not unpleasant it bears little resemblance to what I would expect. I have purchased a few bottles elsewhere and they taste have Tasted delicious.

Impressive wine for food.

Review from tesco.com

I have to say that the quality of this was immediately apparent upon tasting straight from the fridge. Great structure. A complex, deep & floral, quality wine that is the perfect food partner to creamy & spicy fish & chicken dishes: We tried it with salmon in a spicy cream sauce with garden vegetables. Perhaps a touch on the sweet side for drinking on it's own (for me) BUT it cuts through cream & spice on the palette perfectly. Would be great with soft shell crab and thai curries or a chicken korma.Very impressive.

A very versitile wine

Review from tesco.com

This I an extremely good wine - great on its own or with a meal - particularly chicken. I have enjoyed gewurtztraminers over many years - was first introduced to it in the early 70s and have purchased many bottles since. I prefer red to white but if a Gewurtztraminer in on the wine list l would go for it. This Tesco finest is great quality.

Great value for the price.

Excellent quality from the renowned Alsace. Superb with traditional Thai curries.

one of our favourites

Review from tesco.com

We were so glad to find this wine available on line from Tesco. It is one of our favourites and has seemed unavailable in any of the local supermarkets lately. This wine rarely disappoints and this bottle has proved most enjoyable and the case is disappearing much too quickly. We enjoy it with curries but also as a nice wine to drink on a sunny afternoon.

An explosion of flavour!

Review from tesco.com

What a fantastic example of an off-dry Gewurz from Alsace, and good value too at around £8. The wine is a mid-intensity lemony colour, which leads onto fabulous aromas of rose petal, turkish delight, oranges and mangoes. The intense aromatics are followed through on the palate too, where more floral and tropical notes dominate. Oily in texture, but the sweetness is well balanced by a noticeable backbone of acidity. A brilliant Alsatian spice-matcher!

Always reliable

You get what you pay for with this reasonable benchmark Alsace Gewurz.

classic gewurtztraminer

Review from tesco.com

Oily(sounds horrible but in this context good) and perfumed with enough acid to stop it being cloying.Even an ignoramus like me with a poor sense of taste could identify the grape in this wine in a blind tasting.Good value.
