Par-lor's Favourite Wine

Domaine Moltes Gewurztraminer Reserve
        1st white wine that impressed me. That happens to be at my friends’ house party to    
        pair with cheese fondue. The sweet level is brilliant and bouquet is creamy. It pairs   
        well with melting cheese, gives you a refreshing spark. It’s not those port-like 
        complexity; a simple straight forward wine which its structure still remains after 
        hours. With price less than $200, it is my all-time favourite. 

        -       Vineyard: Domaine Moltes, Alsace. Small 13 hecture vineyard planted near  
        -       Grape: Gewurztraminer
