External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Herrenweg de Turckheim
(15.2% alcohol with 7.6 g/l r.s.) Pale yellow-gold color. Expressive aromas of smoked meat, spices and mirabelle then surprisingly dry in the mouth, with bracing flavors of minerals and ginger. Not yet round but this has a serious backbone.
Just off-dry and spicy, with grapefruit and lychee flavors added to the mix. Nicely balanced, picking up intensity on the white pepper-tinged finish. Drink now through 2010.
A good value in the world of Zind-Humbrecht wines, this off-dry Gewuuml;rztraminer is super-concentrated, with a silky texture and flavors of lychees and cling peaches. A nice white cherry accent kicks in on the medium finish. Try with Thai fare.
Bright yellow. Musky aromas of yellow plum and subtle spices. Supple, pure and deep, with an ineffable spice character bringing one back for another sniff and sip. Boasts lovely purity and concentration of fruit and a captivating sugar/acid balance. At this point in our tasting, Humbrecht emphasized that he considers 2005 a superb vintage for gewurztraminer, andldquo;right up there with the best 2002s, 2000s and 1994s.andrdquo;
Just off-dry and spicy, with grapefruit and lychee flavors added to the mix. Nicely balanced, picking up intensity on the white pepper-tinged finish. Drink now through 2010. 1,125 cases made. -BS Wine Spectator. A Gewurztraminer wine from Alsace in France. 2005 Domaine Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Herrenweg Turckheim 750ml
Zind-Humbrechtrsquo;s 2007 Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim smells of sweet pea, celery seed, litchi, peach preserves, bacon fat and browned butter. Polished and honeyed, creamy and sultry (but without its 15.5% alcohol generating objectionable heat) it finishes with remarkable reserves of primary juiciness and nips of cress and white pepper which mdash; no doubt along with sheer extract mdash; help keep its sweetness from becoming cloying.
This juicy white delivers honeyed flavors of kumquat, star fruit, candied grapefruit, with exotic spice and smoke. The firm acidity finds precision balance with the silky, mouthcoating texture, and a pretty orange blossom note lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2020.
