Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace 2011
The nose shows classic rose/floral aromatics, without excess though, and it is just starting to develop more interesting spicy/peppery notes. The fact that it spent the whole time on gross lees, helps to reduce the over varietal characteristic of this grape, that can sometime be excessive. The palate is long, elegant, feels dry and like any other wine in this category is already an excellent food wine.
External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace
Ground ginger, anise and allspice notes mix with flavors of ripe yellow apple, toasted almond and a hint of pastry. Round and creamy, this is balanced by a delicate backbone of acidity. Zesty finish. Drink now through 2017.
Pale straw-green with a golden tinge. Spicy, peppery lime and chamomile aromas on the bright nose, complicated by obvious yeasty notes from the long lees contact. Lime sorbet and peach flavors are clean and persistent, but the finish shows a bit of heat. Made from 20-year-old vines.
