PalateThe palate of the 2007 Gewurztraminer Hengst Sélection de Grains Nobles fascinates with the same intense minerality that we already find in the nose, a vibrating acidity and a honey-like sweetness. After a few days of opening, notes of baked apple, vineyard peach, quince, aniseed, cloves and cinnamon emerge alongside the aromas of white nougat, honey, caramel and the extremely distinct and stony minerality.

Color

Sparkling golden yellow with intense amber reflections.

Nose

The nose of the 2007 Gewurztraminer Hengst Sélection de Grains Nobles is clearly marked by botrytis. At this stage, it is still very closed, almost inaccessible. After a few days of opening, notes of baked apple, vineyard peach, quince, anise, cloves and cinnamon emerge alongside the aromas of white nougat, honey, caramel and the extremely clear and stony minerality.

Palate

The palate of the 2007 Gewurztraminer Hengst Sélection de Grains Nobles fascinates with the same intense minerality that we already find in the nose, a vibrating acidity and a honey-like sweetness. You can already guess a little of the complexity of this noble sweet work of art, but you should give it the time it needs to show itself in all its glory.
