GM Machmer, Gewürztraminer, Spatlese Bechtheimer Stein, Rheinhessen, Germany, 2015
FLORAL & SPICY, JUICY TO THE CORE, BALANCED
Georg Machmer has recently handed the reigns to his son, Markus, who belongs to a new generation of winemakers in Germany and is devoted to producing the best wines possible from the village of Bechtheim. This warmer mesoclimate within the Rheinhessen is wonderfully conducive to the production of expressive, spicy, floral Gewürztraminer. Tangerine, peach and white pepper pervade, and the finish is impressive and lingering.
Serving Suggestion: Thai food is certainly on the radar for this gem. In fact, consider pairings with a wide range of Asian and Pan-Asian influenced foods. Loves spices and garlic!
