2017 Zind Humbrecht Hengst Gewürztraminer Alsace (Previously $80)

SKU #1445111 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This has such complex, fresh and pristine florals with lilacs, frangipani and lemon blossom, intermingled with very ripe peaches, pears, lychees and melon. Plenty of spice, too. The palate is super smooth, creamy and seamlessly carved with spiced white peaches, holding long, silky, sweet and pure. This is so impressive. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Flinty, smoky reduction hovers promisingly on the nose of this wine. Underneath that reductive cloud spicy notes of honeysuckle come to the fore, edged with aromatic orange blossom. The concentrated palate comes with a phenolic backbone that lends structure and enough zesty orange-peel notes to balance the generous sweetness. This wine is both juicy and charming, concentrated and powerful. The finish is fresh, long and zesty. (AK) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fine and silky, this takes rich, ripe, off-dry notes of pureed peach, lychee, spun honey, ground ginger and cardamom and firms the flavor range by seamlessly integrating a laserlike streak of racy acidity. Medium-to-full-bodied and lithe, featuring a long finish of mineral and spice accents. Drink now through 2032. (AN) Inner quote mark (10/2019)
