2018 Zind-Humbrecht Hengst Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Alsace

SKU #1503122 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Welcome to the spice cabinet! Deep, dark and unctuous, this is an enormously spicy gewurz that’s got so much structure (great tannins, like a top red!) that the sweetness is pushed into the background. And the super long finish is so graceful that even a gewurz skeptic like me is seduced. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Ripe Mirabelle, candied tangerine and barley-sugar notes dance on the intense nose of this wine. On the palate these flavors burst with tempered sweetness, reveling in the intense pithiness of tangerine zest. This wine is concentrated, elixir-like and sweet, yet racy with citrus and appetizing with its intense juiciness. (AK) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This shows fine balance, with well-cut acidity and a zesty thread of pink grapefruit peel providing precisely enough verve to keep the rich baked pineapple, dried apricot, honeycomb and toasted cardamom notes from ranging into opulence. Fragrant and floral on the creamy finish. Drink now through 2025. Inner quote mark (5/2021)
