2012 Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer
Dry and focused, this mineral-driven version offers lots of ground white pepper and ginger notes, with an open-knit mesh of crunchy apricot, lychee, grapefruit zest and melon rind. Drink now through 2020.—A.N.
This is the entry level Gewürz from Zind-Humbrecht, one of Alsace's most respected producers. And unlike many in its class, it doesn't smell like a bottle of your grandmother's perfume. Fresh, spicy and mineral, with a hint of smoked meat, this will surely impress.
