Domaine Meyer-Fonne Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Wineck-Schlossberg Vendange Tardive 2011 (500 mL)
Felix Meyer is a master at the art of blending and carefully applies this skill in blending the wine from various parcels into complex, balanced cuvees. He also believes in raising his wines on fine lees in large, older wooden casks, as the tradition in Alsace. Striking aromatics, beautiful complexity and a signature mineral spine characterize all of Meyer's wines.
"Bacon fat, rose petal, overripe muskmelon, mango and honey on the nose and expansive palate of Meyer’s 2011 Gewurztraminer Wineck-Schlossberg Vendange Tardive... This is a bit less lush or polished but its sweetness is also a bit better-integrated so that a sustained finish reveals some attractive counterpoint by way of cinnamon stock and candied citrus rinds." - Wine Advocate
