Pungent, extravagantly rich, soil-inflected aromas of smoked meat and lichee. Splendidly layered in the mouth; powerful, medium-sweet and framed by strong acids. Coats the mouth with mineral dust. The longest yet of these '98 gewürztraminers. Very impressive.
The magnificent, rose and lychee-scented 1998 Gewurztraminer Hengst is full-bodied and oily-textured. Thick, yet fresh, detailed, and polished, it is packed with lychee nuts. The wine's high level of alcohol (15.9%) slightly shows through the dense fruit, but its extroverted, focused, and fruit-dominated personality more than makes up for it. Projected maturity: 2002-2012.
Beautiful expression of the varietal. Full, rich and opulent, boasting honey, apricot, litchi and grapefruit notes married to a sumptuous framework that also provides structure. It ends on a lingering aftertaste of honey and hazelnuts.
