Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Herrenweg de Turckheim 2007
Zind Humbrecht's 2007 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl shows an aromatic nose ofexotic fruits and jasmine flowers that gives way to a palate of extremeelegance and well balanced sweetness. Concentrated flavours fill the mouth withlush lychee notes, honeysuckle, exotic spices and tropical fruits. Boisterouslyexpressive yet graceful, this will hold for many years, gaining more layers ofadditional complexity.
An "Indice 4", this wine is actually considered "sweet" by Olivier. Fair enough...but it was so lovely, I had to include it in this list. Everything Gewurz should be - rosewater and lychee on the palate with a hint of unctuousness that never turns cloying.

External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Aoc Herrenweg de Turckheim
A good value in the world of Zind-Humbrecht wines, this off-dry Gewanduuml;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.
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.
Sehr frischfruchtiges Bouquet nach Zitronen, Grapefruit und weissem Pfirsich, dazu intensive mineralische Noten. Sehr elgegant und harmonisch, perfekte Frische und Trinkfluss, mit einer saftigen Säure im trockenen, mineralischen Abgang.
Zind-Humbrechtandrsquo;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 andmdash; no doubt along with sheer extract andmdash; help keep its sweetness from becoming cloying.
(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.
Exotic and rich, this Gewürztraminer has a smoky, mineral edge to its rose, apricot and honey flavors. It's big, but never plodding, and resonates on the long finish. Drink now through 2010.
