Mittnacht Klack Rosacker Gewurztraminer, 1993
When I tasted this wine's sibling, the 1993 Riesling, a couple of months ago, I wrote that it had some Gewurz-like qualities. Had I tasted them side by side I would not have made such a statement. This wine has all the scents and flavors of a mature Alsace Gewurztraminer--roses, lychee nuts, bergamot and barbershop. It's big boned with even some tannins to give it a pleasantly bitter finish. The flavors dance; this is a special wine.
