Mango, musk melon, litchi, jasmine, black tea, and ginger on the nose of the Zind-Humbrecht 2007 Gewurztraminer Clos Windsbuhl join with honey, lime, and marzipan on a creamy, buoyant palate for an effect confectionary and yet somehow refreshing. Cashew brittle, candied ginger and lime zest along with liquid floral perfume dominate the soothing, buoyant, almost endlessly enticing finish. This benefits from some of the highest acidity of any of the Zind-Humbrecht 2007s, even though one doesn't taste that as such. You can lock this away for 20 years if you wish, but it is still going to have sweetness to spare, I suspect, so why not savor it all along, even if that means unaccompanied?
