Domaine Zind-Humbecht Gewurztraminer Hengst Grand Cru 2016

Indice of sweetness on the palate 2016 vintage: 3 / average sweetness, higher in the youth of the wine, which will gradually fade with age.

Hengst produced at Domaine Zind Humbrecht originates solely from the Gewurztraminer grape variety… for the moment! We have a vineyard parcel on the east facing slope of the Hengst, not used for the Hengst Grand Cru wine, which will be replanted to Riesling in the next few years.
Without doubt, the south facing slope of the Hengst favours Gewurztraminer and is known for wines with great ageing potential. Despite their differences, every vintage of Hengst needs a few years to reach maturity. However once the wine is expressive of the Hengst character, we expect the wine to last several decades without losing any of its presence and persistence.
Hengst means stallion and this is evident in the expression of the terroir and its ability to produce very powerful wines, quite rich in alcohol and great maturity but rarely attacked by noble rot (except for vintages with sufficient heat and humidity). The aromas are often discreet, even closed on the nose. Hengst needs time, and with time develops complexity and aromas of smoke and spice.

 

Indice: Level of sweetness on the palate. Scale from 1 to 5.

1: analytically dry or tasting dry. 2: not analytically dry, but the sugars are not obviously apparent on the palate. Some tasters may find a slight roundness in the finish. These wines will taste dry with some bottle ageing. 3: Medium sweetness, higher in the youth of the wine, which will gradually fade with age. 4 : sweet wine. 5 : Sweet wine, very close to a Vendange Tardive.
