Yugen is the realised dream of Brodie Comer & Tim Scanlon. This balls to the wall power couple of the vinous world have honed themselves in nearly every aspect of the industry and that broad scope shows in each one of their beyond impressive bottles.
Let me, and I will ramble on about any of their wines all day.....but holy shit the Gewurz. This damn thing blew me all the way away. Brodie & Tim picked the grapes for this wine individually, only picking the fruit that met the strict criteria of perfect health and potential in every way, that alone is a feat beyond comprehension.
Once safely inside its vessel, the wine spent 2 years under flor. It has used those years to take the best influence it possibly could from the flor without falling in to the depths of the danker side of Jura. It's so damn clean and has the most enchanting, delicate freshness to it. This is still run-at-you Gewurz but in such a unique form, I really hope as few of you as possible miss out because unfortunately they made bugger all.
