Info about the wine

The Gewürztraminer is probably not the most striking grape we harvest from the late ripening Clos Windsbuhl, but it is the grape variety with the oldest history there. Certainly the good exposure (south/southeast) and the lighter rocky limestone contribute to perfect ripeness and ensure a very long hanging time for the grapes. Clos Windsbuhl is consistent and very regular in style never the most powerful, but always the most intense and delicately perfumed. All vines were planted in the 1960s or earlier. (Olivier Humbrecht)

Info about the expansion

In 2018, the Windsbuhl went through the warm and dry summer without any problems and delivered beautiful grapes, beautifully coloured, with ideal ripeness. It is regularly one of the slowest fermenting wines and also one that retains one of the highest levels of residual sweetness, which is a classic characteristic of this vineyard. (Olivier Humbrecht)

Color

Bright, intense golden yellow.

Nose

2018 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl is unmistakably a Gewurztraminer Roses, grapefruit, grapefruit peel, elderberry pulp, liquorice, cardamom and ginger all flow to the nose, surprising with citrus freshness and liveliness. Already in the fragrance, a truly elegant seducer opens up to us.

Palate

Fine sweetness is paired with fresh acidity, salty and deep minerality and a structure that shows grip and grips. Light-footed and impressive at the same time, this is how Gewürztraminer must taste, especially one of which one would like to enjoy a glass or two more with fine food. In the reverberation remains coolness and freshness, a truly lively wine.
The impatient who would like to open it at this moment are advised to decant it at least one day before and not to enjoy it too cold from big Burgundy glasses.
