Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Wintzenheim 2001

The gewurztraminer Wintzenheim is partly coming from a very old vineyard located on a gravely soil and partly from young vines (20 years old) located in the Hengst vineyard. The blend of those two different soils results in an interesting balance. As the Turckheim, the fermentation was vigorous and this wine finished totally dry.

Tasting notes

01/2003 : The nose has strong spicy, peppery flavours. The palate shows a racy structure with a very dry finish, but without bitterness. This wine is always less showy in its youth, mais does have a balance that will unable him to age slightly better.
