2019 Zind-Humbrecht Hengst Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Alsace (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1554524 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s nothing obvious about this intensely spicy gewurz. In fact, studying the aromas is like solving an intricate puzzle. Very powerful and creamy with succulent tropical-fruit character, the bold minerality balancing the touch of sweetness. The palate is no less intriguing, thanks to the cool depths that are ever more revealed on the very refined finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (6/2021)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Both fruity and spicy, this Gewurztraminer from Hengst Grand Cru offers generosity, freshness, and a stunning complexity. Very pleasant. We can believe that this wine will benefit from several years of cellaring. Perfectly balanced, the palate is tense and precise, with a calcareous texture that brings a linear finish. Slightly tannic, the wine is racy and superb! Keep it 10 years or more, and it will be even more impressive. Drinking Window 2030 - 2055. (JC) Inner quote mark (9/2021)
