Winemaker Notes

Floral aromas with a hint of rose along with elegant spice. Elegant, approachable and long on the palate.

Pair with Foie Gras, or white meat with cream-based sauce.

Wine Enthusiast
The nose hints at richly golden fruit: ripe peach and glowing mirabelle. A floral tone of honeysuckle hovers. The palate comes in with clean, earthy and lemon-concentrated force, leaving the palate tingling with lemon zest and pith. The finish is just about dry but utterly clean-cut. All of this is more about texture than aroma.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The intensely colored 2015 Alsace Gewurztraminer Turckheim displays a beautifully clear, precise and aromatic, also pure and mineral bouquet with spicy flavors intertwined with ripe orange aromas. Round, ripe and highly elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, silky textured, intense and seductive Gewurz with a firm but very fine tannin structure and remarkable complexity in the long, perfectly balanced finish. Picked in different vineyards around Turckheim on September 21st and 22nd, this a picture-book Alsace Gewurztraminer was bottled with just 2.3 grams of residual sugar and 13.9% alcohol. The total acidity is just 3.6 grams per liter (pH of 3.8), but this doesn't matter. "We shouldn't forget that Gewurztraminer is a red wine with a white color," says Olivier Humbrecht, arguing that the grape's phenols are as high as in Pinot Noir. "We have to speak about the quality of the tannins when it comes to Gewurztraminer, instead of acidity."

Image of winery
The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959 by the merging of two families, that on Zenon Humbrecht, viticulteur in Gueberschwihr, and that of Emile Zind, viticulteur in Wintzenheim, with the marriage of their children, Leonard Humbrecht and Ginette Zind. Before this date both families produced and sold their wines separately. Domaine Humbrecht had been passed from father to son since the Thirty Years War (1620). The vinification is now in the hands of Oliver Humbrecht, son of Ginette and Leonard. In 1995, Robert Parker called Oliver's 1993's "The wine of a genius".

Image for Alsace content section

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.

Gewurztraminer

View all products

Gewürztraminer is an expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety. It is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and can produce beautiful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of north-eastern Italy. With the notable exception of the Anderson Valley, most regions of California are too warm for Gewürztraminer’s low potential acidity, but it has done particularly well in more northerly, cooler regions of North America such as British Columbia, Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula, and New York's Finger Lakes.

In the Glass

Gewürztraminer is bold and highly aromatic, with intense flavors of lychee, rose petal, ginger, musk, exotic spice, smoke, pineapple, apricot kernel and peach. Wines range from bone dry to quite sweet and its naturally low acidity is offset by high levels of skin-derived phenolics, which in addition to aromatics, provide weight and a good structural grip.

Perfect Pairings

Gewürztraminer’s natural spiciness makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine, such as Indian, Middle Eastern, or Moroccan fare. It is also excellent with dense, oily fish like salmon, swordfish and mahi-mahi, and works well with a wide range of meats and charcuterie. Gewürztraminer truly shines with classic Alsatian dishes like choucroute, Quiche Lorraine and anything egg-based.

Sommelier Secret

Because of its floral perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine. For those who have been introduced to wine through Moscato or other sweet wines, Gewürztraminer can serve as the perfect bridge towards an appreciation for dry whites.
