Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Turckheim 2018

This classy gewürztraminer from the iconic Alsace wine region is a must for lovers of biodynamic wines. It has classic subtle rose and floral aromatics with hints of spicy peppery notes. The palate is long, elegant and dry. This is a brilliant food wine and would marry up flawlessly with grilled fish or white meat, smoked food and many Asian influenced dishes.

pale and bright yellow colour. The nose shows less of the typical floral aromas but much more spicy intensity. Quite open at this early stage, it has a nice purity. Like many 2014s, the attack and palate is more intense than expected. The wine has a dry structure but delicate roundness, enhanced by nice acidity so there is neither excess weight nor austerity or bitterness. The wine opens up very nicely and is showing less varietal character. The finish is dry, long and harmonious. This makes it extremely interesting with food, and not just of the spicy types.

“Pale gold. Intensely aromatic with rose petals and lychees – sounds so clichéd but that is what it is like. It is hard to believe the stated alcohol because although this is deeply scented, it is supremely delicate and has the freshness to balance. A little more oily and viscous on the finish but floats like a much lighter wine. ”Jancis Robinson, March 2016

Bright yellow. Smoky saline nuances to the fresh citrus and spice aromas on the discreet nose. Then fresh and lemony on the palate, offering sneaky concentration. Peppery acidity firms the long, salty, slightly bitter finish (5.8 g/l residual sweetness and 4.3 g/l total acidity). Made from sites around Turckheim that are stony and quite hot, this wine needs time. I’d cellar it for at least another year to see how it develops Ian Agata
