Domaine Zind Humbrecht Gewürztraminer 2007
|Brand||Domaine Zind Humbrecht|
A relatively fast and easy fermentation produced a powerful intense gewürztraminer. The nose is a perfect combination of the classic ancient rose, litchi fruits and more complex spicy, peppery, new leather aromas. It really is very powerful and profound. The palate is of no surprise at this stage. The gravely soil allows the aromas to be very expressive at an early stage, so there is no need to wait to enjoy this wine. There is some roundness, mostly on the middle of the palate, but high ripeness and cool summer also mean more natural phenols and acidity, so the finish is clean and tight. This wine will be perfect with poultry, smoked food, onion pie, turkey, cheese, and of course anything spicy that needs the extra factor in the wine.
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 grapefruit and candied orange peel. Bright acidity crackles through to the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2019.
