Fleshy, roasted, heavily botrytized flavors convey a strong shriveled grape character. Distinctly thicker and more concentrated than the "regular" Mambourg SGN, but today I prefer the other wine for its captivating fruit.

Weinbach's 2006 Gewurztraminer Mambourg Quintessence de Grains Nobles displays candied, confectionary sweetness, encompassing prominent caramel and butterscotch. Sage oil, cassis, musk, and gardenia are among the exotica that add to this wine's fascination, although whether one would go so far as to refer to -allure- will, I strongly suspect, vary from taster to taster. While there is something audacious about a wine this concentrated and sweet, there is something equally audacious about laying any away, since it is so disorganized and overriding in sweetness that I at least can only guess what will emerge over the coming decades.
