2018 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Hengst, Zind Humbrecht

This vineyard’s south-east exposure enjoys the warmth of the Colmar micro-climate, and its marl-rich soils are well equipped for hot, dry weather. The only wine Zind-Humbrecht produces from this excellent vineyard is their Gewurz, which is a heady expression of exotic fruit and lively fresh ginger notes, with great persistence and tension running through it. It has superb ageing potential, where the exotic primary notes will unfurl into smoke and spice.

2018 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Hengst, Zind Humbrecht
Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Olivier Zind-Humbrecht is respected not just for his winemaking but also his stature as France’s very first Master of Wine, as well as being a downright nice guy. With 40 hectares of vineyards farmed biodynamically, he is famous for very low yields, and for producing wine from all four noble grapes. Olivier has pioneered a grading system for his wines, labelling one (dry) to five to indicate their sweetness, amongst other efforts to put Alsace and indeed, Zind-Humbrecht, on the fine wine map.
