2002 Zind-humbrecht Gewurtztraminer Hengst

ZH reduced

Deep gold, but what a hedonistic melange on the bouquet! Honey, cinnamon and other baking spices, musk, white flowers. Its very concentrated with enough acidity to carry the 41 g/l sugar. ZH rows their own boat – this wine is 15% a/v, but is in balance; phenolics add interest and texture. Amazing vitality for a 13 y/o aromatic wine, and a very suitable match for the roast chicken. Cannot see improvement but it will provide a few more years of drinking pleasure. 95= points
