Gustave Lorentz, Alsace (France) Gewurztraminer 2016

($25, Quintessential):  Gewurztraminer is an idiosyncratic wine — people seem either to love or hate it. Complicating its popularity is an undisclosed level of sweetness, not unlike an impediment to enjoying Riesling.  Gustave Lorentz, a classic name in Alsace, makes impeccable wines.  This Gewurztraminer is one of them.  Dry, aromatic, and spicy, its slightly bitter finish makes it a great companion to Asian or any full-flavored food.
