Zinck Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Eichberg 2012

Amazing example of an Alsatian Grand Cru Gewürztraminer - big, spicy with intense, spicy fruit backed by underlying richness. From Zinck's top vineyard. A wine to contemplate. 93 points Wine Enthusiast: The Eichberg vineyard, one of the driest in Alsace, is on a gentle southeast- facing slope. This Gewurztraminer shows the opulent style of wines that are typically produced. It is rich and generous, developing cinnamon and nutmeg flavors balanced by superripe tropical fruits. It still has a way to go, so drink from 2017.

Wow! What a decadent wine. It amazes me how it can come on so fruity and juicy and finish so clean. That balance of RS and acidity is remarkable. Lots of complexity: ginger, floral, tropical fruit, baking spice and honey. Rich, full texture with mouthwatering acidity. Thai food, spicy Asian fusion or Indian food - all great pairings... Or sip blissfully with a good book.
