(racked; 12.4% alcohol with 74 g/l r.s.) Candied citrus peel, flowers and herbs on the nose and palate. Glyceral-rich but almost magically juicy, with lovely citric cut intensifying the wine's superb fruit. Barely 10% botrytized fruit here. This took a long time to ferment its sugars and went through malolactic fermentation, but it's wonderfully high-pitched and pure, with an exhilarating combination of low alcohol and brisk acidity. A knockout in the making, and probably a wine that will be best enjoyed on its own. (ST)
The 2007 Gewürztraminer Clos Windsbuhl has a golden-apricot color and offers a very clear, pure, and transparent though intense and intriguingly spicy bouquet with notes of ginger, orange blossoms, pineapples, lemon zest, crushed pepper and many other flavors. Full-bodied, highly elegant and intense on the palate, this is a very mineral, almost dry tasting, very spicy and firmly structured wine of great finesse, expression and drinkability. The finish is buoyant and aromatic, and reveals a stimulating salinity. There is no fat or any opulence at all. This is a fascinatingly vibrant and finesse-full Gewürztraminer from one of the finest origins for this grape variety. (SR)
The Clos Windsbuhl Gewürztraminer is a noticeably sweet wine with a decadent texture and penetrating notes of caramel, lychee and poached apricots. The palate is intense and concentrated, framed by flavors of candied apple and Indian spices while a finish of white pepper and honey seems to go on and on. Serve with foie gras for a transporting experience.
This is very juicy, like eating a ripe blood orange or peach, with lots of tangy acidity to make the mouth water. Hints of honey and orange blossom and a touch of lychee are also displayed, with smoke on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2022.
