Established in 1896, Willm Estate has a history of being a pioneer of Alsatian wine. The Willm family set the standard in producing some of the world's best Gewürztraminer under the Clos Gaensbroennel label, prior to acquiring the Willm property. Famously, Emile Willm was responsible for exporting the first wines from Alsace to the United States, post-prohibition. With all this history and esteem, Willm still knows how to have fun with their winemaking. The Meli-Melo is meant to be a playful and enjoyable blend, catering to the effortlessness of enjoying Alsatian wine. Willm is not afraid of taking chances, this wine is affectionately called the "funny blend" at the estate. Alsatian wines take influences from both French and German styles. The noble varietals of Alsace are Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat. This is a blend of equal parts Riesling and Pinot Gris. Enjoy over the holiday season served at 6-8C.
Soft, sunshine yellow.
A base of white grapefruit and golden apples, with herbaceous lemongrass, fresh picked thyme, green melon and lemon segments. The aromas evolve as the wine warms in the glass, from crisp to exotic.
A fleshy and bright palate with more fresh tropical fruits and citrus. A fruit salad of canned pineapple and pear juice, more sweet grapefruit and underripe cantaloupe. Juicy and easy to enjoy, the wine is light-medium bodied with great, zesty acidity. The medley of fruits lead to clean and lightly sweeter finish.
This is a perfect wine to share with friends over the holidays during casual get-togethers and celebrations. With an assortment of canapés and appetizers, from melon and prosciutto, soft cheeses and cold-cuts.
