From a little vineyard in Philo, this wine has been fermented to absolute dryness, which is rare in a Gewürz. Thus, the acidity is unrelieved, and it's high. Fruit? Try hints of peach, with earthy herbs. It's a fierce wine, a connoisseur's wine. Something this dry and intense needs food to soften it. The winemaker recommends foie gras. —S.H.
