Terroir : Limestone marl from the Oligocene

Index: 3

Tasting :Bright yellow colour. The nose shows an intense spicy/fruity combination. Experienced tasters will easily recognise the signature of the Hengst limestone: the wine is on the rocks, persistent, imposing in the mouth, showing a grainy texture and ripe tannins. The 2019 is so harmonious that it is possible to taste the wine today. This is rare for the Hengst vintage! The finish is smooth, soft, with concentrated minerals that bring a saline finish. The 2019 has achieved perfect balance and will age gracefully for many years.

Terroir: The imposing south-east facing hillside of Grand Cru Hengst is located south of the village of Wintzenheim. This red Oligocene limestone is one of the best terroirs for Gewurztraminer. The vineyard benefits from very hot and dry growing conditions, and the soil provides structure, high phenolic concentration and reduces the powerful varietal expression in favour of a more complex spicy expression. The wine comes from two small vineyards, planted in 1953 and in the 1920s. These are probably the best and most beautiful Gewurztraminer selections on the estate. They predate the modern higher yielding clones and are capable of producing a complex and coherent wine where varietal characteristics do not dominate the wine. Obviously, the Hengst is harvested at a high level of ripeness and should always be expected to finish its fermentations with a certain amount of sweetness.

 

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.
