Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Clos Windsbuhl 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright medium yellow. Fruit salad and spices on the nose, with hints of more exotic fruits. Very sweet and spicy, with a distinct dried fruit quality in the mouth. Shows a slightly bitter-edged phenolic quality on the back end, but this may be mostly a function of some unabsorbed CO2 that will eventually be absorbed. This youthfully hard wine needs patience...92+" IWC 12/12 "There's a tension to this floral Gewürz, with tightly knit flavors of candied grapefruit zest, blood orange, honey, ripe peach, smoke and fleur de sel wrapped by firm, intense acidity. Lacy in texture, this finds lovely balance. Mouthwatering, spiced finish...93" WS 10/12

The annual cycle of work, parallel with cycle of nature, consists of a number of interventions, comprising biological treatments against the diseases and others aiming at improving the quality. mong the latter, the pruning is particularly decisive. Too severe, it prevents the harmonious development of the vine, insufficient, the vine will overproduce unripen grapes. A this moment, the presence of Paul’s grandson Pierre-Paul Humbrecht, is of utmost importance to the vineyard, to prune correctly and at the right time. Given unfavourable climatic conditions, the harvest may suffer but when the seasons flow normally the right pruning will be rewarded by a juice of very high quality. hen the vine has had its budburst, the disbudding (selection of branches) and desuckering (supression of the growths resulting from sucker from the trunk), are made manually to avoid any harmful effect to the vine. During the bloom, trimming consists in shortening the end of the branches leaving just the right quantity of good quality leafs that the young vine needs. During ripening, the stripping to improve the exposure of the grapes to the sun and thinning out the grapes in excess must be done with precision in order to obtain a harvest of great quality. orking the ground consists of several heavy duty work. Hilling up the vine, ploughing down and plowing between the rows of vine are accomplished each year. Naturally, Pierre-Paul Humbrecht is using the latest agricultural technologies to ease the task while remaining in harmony with nature, thus our advance towards biological agriculture or rather the search of our origins towards the Earth...
