ZIND HUMBRECHT 2012 GEWURZTRAMINER


This Gewurztraminer originates mostly from the precocious gravelly soils of the Herrenweg vineyard in Turckheim as well as some vineyards that used to be in our Wintzenheim label, also on gravelly soils. This grape variety has the capacity to ripen quickly to very high level of potential alcohol, making it difficult to harvest grapes that will produce dry wines. Bio-dynamic farming does allow us to harvest earlier as physiological ripeness is achieved earlier, but in 2012 it was even easier, because the grapes remained very healthy and the sugar increase was slow. The wine eventually fermented dry in just a few weeks.
