I got some very nice small petrale sole filets for supper tonight, and was browsing my overstuffed cellar and came across the '09 Gewurz.
Nice pale yellow color, pleasant mixed melon and spice aroma, much drier on the taste (good!) with plenty of Gewurz spice and a nice acidic floor. Tasted quite young! Actually a very typical Gewurz profile IMO.
The fish was great, and the wine was as good as the fish.
