Description of the wine Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim 2002

This wine is made from the older vines located in the Herrenweg vineyard. There was some significant noble rot development in 2002, which explains the greater richness of this wine, especially when compared to the Turckheim. The climate in this vintage was just perfect for this grape variety in this location, allowing the vines to grow and ripen the grapes very evenly. It is perhaps the reason why this wine has the highest acidity in gewürztraminer in this vintage (harvested quite early).

Tasting notes

01/2004 : The nose is intense rose perfume, mixed with spicy, toasted flavours. Very long palate. The acidity balances the wine perfectly, removing any feeling of heaviness. Rich gewürztraminer, in the league of the 1997 and 2000.
