Terroir des Chateaux Forts, Domaine Rolly Gassmann, Alsace, France 2012
Pronounced rich nose with honeyed peaches, ripe grapes and a touch of exotic lychee. The palate is bright, with fresh acidity and a gently perfumed palate of roses and lychees, with some peach and apricot.
This is a medium dry wine with a long, minerally finish. It's a good alternative to a Spatlese Riesling.
