Details of wine

The passion for viticulture has been handed down from father to son in the Humbrecht family since the 17th century. In 2002 the company received the Ecocert certification and in 2002 the Biodyvin certification, converting all their territory to eco-sustainable agriculture. The Gewurztraminer 2012 has a dry taste with a soft finish. The elegant combination of hints of exotic fruits, citrus fruits and pink grapefruit are typical of this early vineyard. It can be combined with suchi and sashimi, shellfish and white meats.

Color

Giallo paglierino tenue.

Smell

Elegante combinazione di aromi di agrumi, rosa e litchi.

Taste

Il palato è asciutto e termina con una sensazione di potenza. I tannini sono molto morbidi e l'amaro spesso presente nel Gewurztraminer secco non si trova in questo vino, grazie ad una bella maturità fisiologica e all'assenza di pigiatura al momento della vendemmia.

The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht has been created in 1959 by the union of the family owned properties of Zénon Humbrecht, winegrower at Gueberschwihr and of Emile Zind, winegrower in Wintzenheim. Before this date each of our families were producing and selling their wines under their own name. Winegrower from father to son since the Thirty Years war in Europe (1620) the Humbrecht family has long winemaking traditions. Today Léonard and Ginette, as well, as Olivier and Margaret Humbrecht are working together at the Domaine. Chanoine Barth, historian of Alsace wines, recalls that the Humbrecht family was already renting vineyards from the Abbaye of Marbach, near Gueberschwihr, in the 18th century. However, we only started to bottle our wines in 1947. Since then, we have only produced grapes from our own vineyards, making the wine and selling it under our own label. Today the Domaine Zind-Humbrecht has 40 hectares of vineyards located in five different villages in the Haut- Rhin.
