2019 Elena Walch Gewürztraminer Kastelaz Alto Adige

Elena Walch’s Gewürz is estate grown in her Kastelaz Vineyard, a south-facing plot that lies at 350m elevation. Its solid gold robe is perfumed with lily of the valley, paper whites, and white pepper. Firm acidity lights up the middle of the wine, which has substantial mouthfeel and a long, savory-apricot finish. This is peerless with washed rind cheeses, spicy pilafs, and spiced-rubbed meat, poultry, or fish. I’d want to age a bottle, too.
