94+ WA / 94 VM

"Well, the 2013 Gewurztraminer Hengst is no wine for easy drinking. It is the only Grand Cru that bids defiance to the Rangen de Thann. Coming from vines plated soon after WWII and 1957, the nose is seriously deep, salty-mineral and fresh, and displays clear aromas of white stone fruits, orange and lemon zests. Round, elegant and clear on the palate, this is a full-bodied, very elegant and tightly woven wine of great complexity, finishing with a dense, compact and mineral taste. The aftertaste of this powerful wine is tremendous and so is the potential. Sweeter than the Rangen but very promising too." — Stephen Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

"Bright yellow. Lemon drop, mango, orange peel, roasted papaya and cinnamon on the nose. Dense and sappy on the palate, with slightly sweet papaya, grapefruit, ginger and dusty mineral flavors enlivened by saline acidity. Finishes long, fresh and savory, with mouthwatering acidity. With its delightful clarity and cut, this big, rich, dense wines is the prototypical powerful yet elegant Gewürztraminer from the Hengst. It has 45 g/l residual sugar and 5 g/l total acidity. Zind-Humbrecht’s vines are very old, planted in 1947 and 1952, and that explains some of the magic of this wine." — Ian d’Agata, Vinous Media
