Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes 2013
Мощен и леко пикантен нос. Небходимо е време за да се отворят аромати на бекон, пушек и пипер. Развиват се флорални нотки, но е необходимо време, виното да ги разкрие. Вкусът е много сух, а финалът е по-мек и кадифен.

More about this wine
The roots of the Humbrecht family and their viticulture can be traced back to 1620. Today, they own forty hectares of vineyards, classified Grands Cru, in five villages in Haut-Rhin, stretching to the foot of the Vosges and valued for the carpet of various terroirs. Domaine Zind Humbrecht is among the first to make Alsatian wine with a concentrated fruity style, low yields and biodynamic viticulture. Residual sugar levels can vary considerably between crops, but the acceptance of such variations is part of biodynamic philosophy. To guide the consumer to what to expect in the bottle, Zind Humbrecht puts a sweetness index on the labels of their 2001 vintage bottles, indicating the wine from dry to very sweet.All wines of the same producer
Alsace is located in northeastern France, between the Vosges Mountains and the French border with Germany, marked by the Rhine. This is a long, thin region, 185 kilometers from north to south and only 40 kilometers from east to west. The key wine-growing regions here are located on the lower slopes of the Vosges, with eastern and southeastern exposure. Alsace specializes in white varieties such as Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris. These varieties, naturally distributed in neighboring Germany, in contrast, here are produced in a much drier style. The best presented are the dry and mineral Riesling, the spicy and strong Gewürztraminer, which go well with the local cuisine. Other interesting and noteworthy are the light and fresh Sylvaner, as well as Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.More wines of this region
