Gewürztraminer as it should be: lush and rich but balanced with florals, minerality and freshness. Schoffit are our own import and this wine represents the best of this classic modern Alsace style. From fifty year old vines on sustainably managed vineyards of gravelly loess soils, this gorgeous wine offers expert, boutique quality for a very reasonable price.


Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"The intensely citrus coloured 2015 Gewürztraminer Lieu-Dit Harth Cuvée Caroline opens with a super ripe and warm, almost baked tropical fruit on the nose. These aromas are intermixed with fresh lemon, smoky and some earthy/stony flavours, as well spicy notes. Full-bodied, lush and round, this is a very rich but elegant and harmonious wine; it has lots of herbal and floral flavours on the palate, a smooth acidity and good tannins. The 2015 tasted significantly sweeter than the 2014, but analytically it's just three grams more of residual sugar and also the alcohol of 13.7% is .9 volume-percent higher. This is a hedonistic but also elegant Gewürztraminer that should be stored for another five to eight years, although it drinks perfect today for those who like this rich, round and sweet style."

91/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2014 Vintage)
"Dark straw-yellow. Explosive aromas and flavours of smoky bacon, flowers and ripe tropical fruit on the long, crystalline finish. Very obviously Gewürz; this is a knockout wine and all the more impressive given that 2014 was especially tough on this variety. Finishes with a peppery zing and a twist of lime. Schoffit’s youngest Gewürz vines are 30 years old, so the average age of their Gewürz vines is 45, and that fact certainly contributes to this wine’s depth. It enters quite sweet (30 g/L residual sugar) but the 6.8 g/L total acidity gives it a lemony brightness, making it seem light, lively and less sweet than it is. Drink 2017 – 2025."
