Domaine Moltès 2014 Steinert Grand Cru Gewurztraminer (Alsace)
Soft notes of rose petal and sandalwood on the nose frame a rounded and medium-sweet but balanced palate of a soft, smooth and scented richness. The palate adds aromatic peachiness and some tropical notes of lychee with edges of more sandalwood spice. This wine is like a scented cloud of peach with a clean finish.

Domaine Moltès 2014 Steinert Grand Cru Riesling (Alsace)
There is an almost tropical touch to the apple and lemon fruit: this is almost like vanilla-spiced apple tart with lemon zest. Very appetizing with that unusual vanilla-edge and more of that tropical lychee. Overall, this is balanced and very fruit-driven.
