Staff Pick Notes

Bloomer Creek's Tanzen Dame Edelzwicker Pét-nat is a wine of substance. Literally. Pick up the bottle, shake up the sediment, and notice that this wine isn't just cloudy, it's darn near opaque. Beyond appearance, the wine opens with a funky nose of sour beer and a hint of tropical fruit. The palate is thick and chewy, with flavors of apple skins and melons.

The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color. The pink-skinned Gewürztraminer does best in cooler climates, which allow the grapes to develop good balancing acidity. This is a necessary attribute of any...
