Zind-Humbrecht Goldert Vendange Tardive 2005
When you compare dessert wines from Australia with this they are poles apart. The Australian examples are often sickly sweet with no acidity to balance out those flavours yet with this little number there is a vibrant core of acidity which leaves my mouth dry yet dripping with saliva. The flavours of turkish delight mixed with lemon rind, sugar coated spice and spring flowers coat the interior of my mouth. I just can't get my head around how this wine has a texture of syrup yet it feels light in my mouth. I love the fact that I can't get my head around it as it brings up the interest factor a couple of notches.
