External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Sélection de Grains Nobles Hengst
This dry, tangy version offers a lot of the grape's signature rose petal and cream flavors, but is also infused with hints of curry spices and plenty of red grape fruit and candies pouring peel. Bright acidity crackles through to the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2019.
There's good vibrancy to the acidity in this dry, tangy version, with lots of grapefruit and citrus peel up front. Finishes with the floral and white pepper notes typical of the variety. Drink now through 2012.
A dry white, with an overall elegance and flavors of lychee, yellow peach and white pepper. A nice thread of smoky minerality builds to the finish. Drink now through 2013.
Pale medium-gold color. Expressive aromas of smoked meat, rose oil and cinnamon. Plump and spicy, with good ripe acidity and a chewy saline nuance. This is tactile and nicely concentrated, not to mention persistent, for a basic bottling.
This deeply colored dry white is loaded with layers of star fruit, grapefruit, rose, cream and spice, all underscored by a lightly smoky mineral element. The firm structure and defined acidity are filled in by the fleshy texture, with a lingering finish of white pepper and sweet fruit. Drink now through 2025.
Aromatic, with rose and smoked meat elements, this is surprisingly dry, with white pepper, grapefruit and mineral notes. Balanced and firm on the finish, leaving a tingling sensation on the gums. Drink now through 2017.
Deep orange-gold. Exotic, high-toned aromas of orange marmalade, fresh apricot and honey. An exotic, very sweet, VT-weight fruit bomb in the mouth, with a resiny element adding complexity to the high-toned fruits. The wine’s firm spine of acidity cuts through its thickness and extends the very long finish.
