Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim 2001

Only the oldest vines in the Herrenweg are used to produce this gewürztraminer. It is frequent to witness an important development of botrytis in this vineyard, but in 2001, the whole of this terroir was harvested in perfect health condition. The small crop and exceptionally thick skins guaranteed intense flavours for this vintage. Excellent overall acidity for a variety and a location which often have a low level.

Tasting notes

01/2003 : Leather, spices and flowers dominate on the nose. The mouth is powerful and basically dry. The richness feeling comes from the concentration obtained from lower yields and a relatively high alcohol structure. The finish is dry and elegant, very different from the 2000.
