Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Calcaire 2012

The nose shows light citrus fruit with medium intensity but profound complex spices. After some aeration, because the lees influence is still strong on this young wine, it is possible to perceive more exotic fruit. There is an overall sense of ripeness and elegance in this wine on the palate and, gradually, the finish shows more and more complexity. The sweetness feels quite discreet and there is an interesting combination of acidity and tannins that makes this wine taste much drier. Perhaps an Indice 4 was slightly exaggerated. This wine evolved superbly days after being open, showing great ageing potential.
