Lovely oily viscosity, hugs the sides of the glass. Floral nose with ginger, spice and lychee. Palate shows more ginger on the mid palate; attacks with tropical fruit and some minerality. Medium finish. Off dry, decent acidity, worked well with Chinese pork.
Tasting notes to follow but important note first is if you bought this wine thinking it's dry, it's not. This wine was sold to me as a dry wine according to the merchant (Majestic) where, they said, it is only 2 from 9 on the sweetness Richter scale; basically dry. When I tasted the wine, it was sweet! Along with many Alsace producers Zind-Humbrecht now use an indices scale from 1, dry, to 5 sweet and this wine is labelled by the producer as 5, aka sweet! Once I got over the initial surprise of how sweet this was I then recalibrated what I thought of it and liked it a lot. Flowery nose, peach and sweet lychee too. The palate taste is sweet, quite full bodied, spicy, rich, great flavours of lychee, Turkish delight, rose petal. A lovely wine once you know what you're getting! Top tip, check the the indices on the label, it's under the abv but in tiny text.
