Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives Herrenweg de Turckheim Vieilles vignes Zind-Humbrecht (Domaine) 1986

The wine

Large swathes of Herrenweg are planted with Gewürztraminer, since this varietal loves sunshine and it tolerates the heat much better than others. The limestone soil of the Herrenweg terroir gives the Gewürztraminer its great ageing potential and an immense mineral content; these characteristics are showcased and amplified through biodynamic winemaking. Grapes are harvested very ripe – around 50% of which are botrytized – and fermentation is relatively short, lasting just 1 month, in order to retain a well-balanced sugar content. This cuvée has a beautiful yellow colour, opening on the nose with fresh notes of exotic fruit and citrus; the palate is sweet but balanced. The Herrenweg de Turckheim terroir is situated on plain which enjoys lengthy sun exposure, unshadowed by the Vosges mountains until late evening.

About the Producer Zind-Humbrecht

Zind Humbrecht was created in 1959 as a result of the merger of the wine producing operations of the Humbrecht family in Gueberschwihr and the Zind family in Wintzenheim. The Humbrechts are a very old wine-making family, who have been passing their skills from one generation to the next since the Thirty Years War (1620). The property has 40 hectares and is managed according to biodynamic principles. Zind Humbrecht has long been established as one of Alsace's most reputable producers. Léonard Humbrecht has placed quality over quantity, developing superb terroirs that have been neglected because they are too difficult to work, such as Rangen in Thann. Today, Olivier Humbrecht and his father are only interested in exceptional terroirs; their insistence on quality, combined with virtuoso technical ability, enable them to produce exceptionally dense, complex wines that are always respectful of the characteristics of the grape varieties and the terroir.
