Though only formally established in the 1960’s (thanks to the joining of the Rolly and Gassmann families), Rolly Gassmann has been producing fantastic, professional wines since the 17th century. With their expert know-how and understanding of wines and grapes, they are able to infuse some wonderful methods into their production, creating delicious, unique wines.
This particular wine takes an already spectacular Gewurztraminer from Alsace and elevates it to even loftier heights. The Gewurztraminer grapes used in this wine were allowed to take-on Noble Rot, elevating the flavor and sweetness of the wine. The result is a medium-bodied, fruity, sweet, and refreshingly acidic wine that will keep you sipping for hours. To the eye: a beautiful, deep golden yellow is particularly wonderful to observe. On the nose: notes of pineapple, lychee, and floral tones are beautifully presented. On the palate: lychee is the most prominent characteristic but is complemented by citrus and pineapple. The sweetness is distinct, but neither overpowering nor cloying. The acidity is fresh and lively. The wine offers a deep, long finish that lingers pleasantly.
Enjoy this delicious wine with rich fish dishes, pork, and spicy meals, such as curry. The refreshing nature will not only refresh the palate, but complement the myriad flavors in each dish.
