Nose

The old vines of Albert Manns Steingrubler Gewürztraminer are located in Wettolsheim on marly and calcareous sandstone. The wine shows itself very ripe in the nose and is absolutely clear and precise, typical for the variety. It smells of orange and lemon peel, quince, candied orange peel and juicy apricots, furthermore of pepper, nutmeg, light tobacco, turmeric and a little rose.

Palate

On the palate the Steingrubler Although the ripe notes of stone fruit, mango, yellow plums and citrus, but above all, this wine is bright and lively, full of tension and a mineral acidity, which makes the 37 grams of sugar almost completely forgotten. Even the alcohol, often a problem with Alsatian Gewürztraminers, is very moderate here at 13 % and barely noticeable. The wine almost seems a little prancing. Still, it has power and body, showing a tart, freshly bitter side of lemon peel as well as kumquats alongside the fruit, and at the same time the wine lines the palate creamily. This is a very strong performance.
