2013 Gewürztraminer “Fronholz”  Domaine Ostertag - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


John Steinbeck’s East of Eden inspired the name for this wine that reached the entrance to paradise: it was harvested just before vendange tardive levels of sweetness had been achieved. André’s talented wife, Christine Colin, designed the beautiful label. Among a cornucopia of aroma and flavor, André found powdered irises when we tasted it together in Epfig. I found it to be quite unctuous, with a plethora of spices, and it finishes dry. A one-time masterpiece from Ostertag that has been fittingly commemorated with a beautiful work of art—two for the price of one!! –Dixon Brooke
