October 2005 was really hot and followed a short humid period in September, which created ideal conditions for optimal ripeness and the development of noble rot, especially in the less early ripe sites, such as Clos Windsbuhl. Besides sweet peach, apple and citrus notes, one also encounters the typical Gewürztraminer aromas, such as lychee, roses, vanilla, cardamom, ginger and clove.

Color

Intense, sparkling golden yellow.

Nose

On the nose, the 2005 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl Vendanges Tardives shows fresh aromas that are almost a little reminiscent of a noble sweet Riesling. Besides sweet peach, apple and citrus notes, one also encounters the typical Gewurztraminer aromas, such as lychee, roses, vanilla, cardamom, ginger and clove.

Palate

On the palate, the 2005 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl Vendanges Tardives is very complex and multi-faceted; the fine minerality of the limestone soil comes out very nicely here. The sweetness seems very playful due to this minerality and the stimulating acidity. October 2005 was really hot and followed a short wet period in September, which created ideal conditions for optimal ripeness and the development of noble rot, especially in the less early ripe sites, such as Clos Windsbuhl. The fine, chalky soil allows the wine to develop much more and become more aromatic. This Gewürztraminer Clos Windsbuhl 2005 VT shows a rich intense fruity nose and the palate is in full harmony with a rounded sweet character and delicate minerals. The spicy style of this wine is well balanced by the unctuous influence of noble rot. It is already a pleasure to drink, as it will be for decades to come.
