Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim 2000

This wine is made from a selection of our oldest vineyards in the Herrenweg in Turckheim. Thanks to my father and grand parents, there are enough old vines planted there to unable us to produce a good size Herrenweg cask, because the yields are always significantly smaller.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : The 2000 was harvested with some noble rot, adding power and roundness to an already rich harvest. The result is a fantastic rich wine, with strong leathery/spicy aromas, long rich palate, finishing with apparent sweetness but not heavy at all. It is a wine very similar to the 1997.
