Description of the wine Gewurztraminer 2002

All the grapes that make the gewürztraminer Turckheim come from the Herrenweg vineyard. We do actually only keep the older vines for the Herrenweg bottling (above 30 years old). The soil is made of light gravels, which enhance the varietal aromas of the gewürztraminer. In 2002, this vineyard was capable of producing exceptional ripeness and incredible high acidity levels. Fermentations were also very steady, often finishing with high, but harmonious, alcohol levels.

Tasting notes

01/2004 : The nose is very open, showing intense rose/geranium aromas as well as some spicy notes. The palate is powerful, very well balanced with great acidity. This is classic gewürztraminer !
