The nose is very pungent, showing lots of exotic aromas, roses and spices, clearly also influenced by the limestone vineyards from Wintzenheim. The palate shows surprising structure and a dry finish. The grapes were very healthy, so the fermentation was steady and almost complete, which suits this style of Gewurztraminer. It is already quite open but will benefit from a little time in the bottle.
This style of Gewurztraminer will be perfect with grilled fish or white meat, go very well with smoked food, Asian recipes and anything that could be complicated with wines.
"Bright yellow-gold. Bright aromas of mango, lichee and smoked pork. Rich and suave in the mouth, with rich tropical fruit and spice flavors leavened by stony minerality. Enticing, balanced and persistent. Olivier Humbrecht makes it clear that he likes gewurztraminer with a meaty, smoky grilled bacon personality, rather than the floral stuff."

"This bright, fresh wine shows a zesty base note, as light acidity mixes with flavors of orange sorbet, star fruit and grapefruit zest. "
