The 1994 Gewurztraminer Hengst V.T. represents the essence of Gewurztraminer. It tastes dry despite nearly 5% residual sugar. The natural alcohol comes in at an amazing 17+%. Made from 30 and 65-year old vines, this massive, remarkably intense, tannic, structured wine, is a smoky, mind-bogglingly, rich wine that has to be tasted to be believed. Still extremely young and unevolved, it will not begin to hit its plateau of maturity until the turn of the century, where it will remain for 20-25 years. It is a candidate for perfection!

Very rich, yet quite dry. Despite alluring aromas of honey, litchi and hibiscus, this shows an intense mix of acidity and spice, with orange peel and dried grapefruit flavors that attack the palate. Lots of character, but difficult to match with food.
