    143, The Wine Advocate

    Medium to full-bodied and dense, the 2000 Gewurztraminer Hengst is a broad, ample wine with loads of richness. It reveals spiced pear, mineral, and candied apple aromas as well as flavors. Opulently-textured, it should be consumed between 2003 and 2013. Olivier Humbrecht describes 2000 as "a year of excellent ripeness where the key to success was sorting out the bad rot prior to harvesting." To accomplish this, Humbrecht sent out teams to go through every parcel, dropping whatever bunches had been infected with sour rot. Domaine Zind-Humbrecht's harvest lasted 6 weeks, with one-fourth being accomplished between September 19 and October 5th, and the remaining three-fourths picked by October 31st.

  • Bright yellow. Peach, lemongrass, mango, papaya and rose water on the pretty nose. Tactile and layered on the palate, with intense white stone fruit and ginger flavors lifted by a strong floral element. Impeccably balanced wine with a suave, extremely long finish. This was especially expressive when I originally tasted it from cask, showcasing the exotic tropical fruit aromas typical of the vineyard and the vintage in general, but it has shut down somewhat in bottle, which is also a characteristic of this wine.

  • Pale straw. Pristine aromas of canned pineapple, ripe pear, apple juice and white flowers. Silky and precise in the mouth, with complex, deep tropical fruit and flint framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes with a compelling floral perfume. The older Muschelkalklimestone soils of the Clos Windsbuhl really deliver a more feminine, graceful style of Gewürztraminer. This will match perfectly with a lightly curried dish.
