Gewürztraminer Vendanges Tardives, Alsace
Vendages Tardives is a classification for Alsace wines for which grapes are picked weeks after the actual harvest season in order to increase the concentration of natural sugar content. Lightly sweet, with floral notes, and a crisp acidity, this wine works perfectly with the caramel and light spice from the ginger.
