1998 Domaine Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Wintzenheim
Alsace, France
WB Rating: 89

Alcohol by volume: 14.0%
Price at time of purchase: $10.00 (Premier Cru)
Type: Gewurztraminer
Principal varietal(s): Gewurztraminer

One of the best dry Gewurztraminers I've tasted, and a steal during a recent Premier Cru sale. Extremely appealing aromas have flowers in abundance along with apricots, a touch of red fruit (cherry?), and exotic cardamom-like spiciness. The flavors are powerful yet refined, the texture mouth-coating and oily yet with none of the sharpness or pungency that sometimes turns me off in Gewurztraminers. Long, clean, dry finish. Will drink well for years to come. - HK 2002-10-07
