The term Edelzwicker is used to designate any blend of the different white noble varietals of Alsace, without having to indicate the percentages of each. While not defined under AOC law, historically the grapes came from the same parcel or vineyard and the wine was called, "Zwicker" meaning "blend". The prefix "Edel" was added to "mark the presence of noble varieties chosen to replace mass-produced grape varieties." While it's a wine that many, if not most, producers in Alsace make, there is none like that from the domaine of Albert Boxler. But then Boxler wines are a clear cut level above just about anything made in the region. This 2014 vintage is a blend of Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. There is no Sylvaner in it this year so the more aromatic character of Riesling and Gewurztraminer come through in a bright and exciting way. Pretty and exotic floral aromas (both white flowers and roses) along with Asian spices come forth on the nose while delicate stone fruit flavors of white nectarine and dried peach float onto the palate with a nice squeeze of tangerine. Medium bodied and juicy with a flowing, almost voluptuous mouth feel, the wine finishes with very finely tuned acidity and nice length. When it comes to Thanksgiving we often think of pairing the meal with Riesling or Gewurztraminer so when we tasted this Edelzwicker we thought it would be the best of both worlds, delivering the aromatics, fruit content and acidity to match the holiday dinner.
