Pfaffenheim Gewurztraminer 2004, Alsace

I am trying a different format. Let me know what you guys think. I have only tried a few Gewurztraminer so far. They have all been very viscus, creamy, jammy, and sweet or off sweet. For people who likes those crisp, juicy, palate cleansing white wines such as New Zealand's sauvignon blanc, you want to stay away from Gewurztraminer. This variety produces wine with more texture, sweetness, and tropical fruit flavors. This particular wine has pretty high acidity and it is not sickly sweet. I quite enjoy the perfume and white flower characteristics, but I wouldn't want to spend $34 for it.

I would pair it with a gorgonzola, Alsatian wash rind cheeses, soft goat cheeses, and cheese cakes.
