Kuhlmann-Platz Gewurtztraminer, 2015

kuhlmann-platz-gewurtztraminer-2015

I’m of the mind that Alsace rarely takes a wrong turn.  The wines are abundant and diverse in France while a little thin on the ground in BC.  Plus, they tend to be at a price point that is disadvantageous to the everyday drinker.

 

So, on this bottle, it scores for being a decent white, refined, not too expensive, and very approachable.  It is brimming with guava, pineapple and other tropical notes.  It went with Thai chicken green curry a treat, cut through spice and conquered residual coconut milk.  But it is not as accomplished as many wines of the region and it drinks just a tad too heavy, with too much syrup, like the bottom of a tin of lychees, than I prefer.

 

Natalie MacLean went bonkers over this wine.  As a food friendly white, for international cuisine, full marks.  But I could stand a little more to ponder (like the dreamy Gruner Vetliner from Culmina we drank a few weeks ago).

 

Price: Under $20 at BC Liquor before (what I like to call) tax and tip.

 

Market Liquidity: It works, but sometimes that’s not enough.
