The 2005 Gewurztraminer Fronholz Selection de Grains Nobles leads with sweet pea, honey, mint, sea breeze, and rose petal, offers a glycerin-rich, truly scintillating melange of honey, butterscotch, candied and chocolate-covered citrus rind, quince preserves, mint candy and rose water, then gushes in a finish of amazing juicy, vividly primary fruit presence for a Gewurztraminer, let alone a wine so ennobled in its concentration. Yet all the while this multi-faceted wine is delicate of frame and superbly refined in texture. Here is botrytis at its best, ennobling without superseding the grape’s primary fruitiness, and without leaving behind a hint of bitterness or fungal fingerprints.
"Andre Ostertag continues to render some of the most distinctively delicious and thought-provoking wines in Alsace. He now has 120 parcels among his 35 acres, and no grower of my acquaintance gives more thought to aesthetic and stylistic considerations when it comes to vinifying and assembling his many lots."
