Elegant, with a pretty juiciness to the acidity that enlivens the whole wine. Apple and orange blossom notes highlight the ripe apricot and clementine, along with honey, smoke and cream accents. Spicy finish. Drink now... Elegant, with a pretty juiciness to the acidity that enlivens the whole wine.

Rich, glyceral and supersweet; not hugely complex but a fruit bomb of an SGN with solid framing acidity. A remarkably "sunny" style of wine in the context of the year. Finishes ripe and surprisingly open, but with very good grip to its yellow fruit flavors.

The Weinbach 2006 Gewurztraminer Mambourg Selection de Grains Nobles is an example of the kinky exhibitionism that this vintage's botrytis can display. Musk, fading lily, sage flower, fish oil, fungus, quince preserves, strawberry jam, and litchi all rise from the glass and linger on a viscous, glycerin-rich, creamy palate, loaded with sweetness to the point of near excess, yet somehow restrained by sheer extract and a modicum of citricity. This is something of a jumble for now, yet amazingly concentrated and almost luridly fascinating. I can't predict what will come of it, although I imagine its evolution will be measurable in decades.
