2016 Zind Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1386017 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Generous citrus, lychee and jasmine on the nose. Some delicacy. A remarkably crisp and dry gewurztraminer that has a refreshing finish, making it an unusually good food wine for this grape. Drink or hold. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the Herrenwweg area, the intensely citrus colored 2016 Gewurztraminer Turckheim is from vines averaging 47 years old and opens with a very precise and slightly smoky bouquet with lovely spicy Gewurtz notes. Full-bodied yet clean and crisp on the palate, this is an intense, elegant and perfectly balanced wine that fermented down to 3.6 grams of residual sugar, while the alcohol is a moderate 13.6%. It already tasted brilliant but can be kept for a decade. Tasted June 2018. (SR) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Honeysuckle, wet earth and peach pop up amid intense notes of damask rose. The palate is equally perfumed, covered by a veil of rose perfume that makes this wine seem richer than it actually is. Backbone and concentration comes from zesty citrus and a mere lick of residual sugar. All elements come together in an attractive package. (AI) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Cream, rose petal and spice accents waft from the glass of this plushly textured, medium-bodied white, while vivid acidity provides a fine, balancing frame for the palate's lychee, apricot, tangerine and stony mineral notes. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Golden-tinged yellow. Musky, fresh but concentrated aromas and flavors of pineapple syrup, apple, nutmeg and grapefruit jelly. Not a blockbuster showy Gewürz but tightly wound, spicy and firmly structured, displaying a delicate sweetness to its crisp fruit flavors. Finishes firm but bright, with a light tannic impression. In 2016, all the Herrenweg Gewürz grapes were declassified into this wine. Olivier found that in 2016, the young vines gave wines of rustic tannins, and he wanted to improve the mouthfeel by including juice from older vines that gave much smoother wines. (ID) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
