Another good Alsace 2007

OK, it is a bit more minor than the Muscat, but we enjoyed this with a lot of pleasure. You cannot really go too far off the path if you buy Sorg. For London kids you can get it by the bottle at Fortnum’s.

Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes 2007, Domaine Bruno Sorg

This has a deep, rich nose of roses and a degree of liquorice/banana action is there as well. This is properly concentrated and fruity, with a reasonable degree of complexity on the nose. The palate is lovely and weighty, but with amazing acidity. Ow, ooww, oooowwww… quite a lot of acidity. There is complexity here too. This is a quite delicious and reasonably thought-provoking bottle of Gewurztraminer. Yeah, it is good.
