This juicy white delivers honeyed flavors of kumquat, star fruit, candied grapefruit, with exotic spice and smoke. The firm acidity finds precision balance with the silky, mouthcoating texture, and a pretty orange blossom note lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2020.

A cheesy, yeasty "Mosel stink" on the nose of Richter's 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett did not entirely blow off during the time I could devote to it, but the rest of the scents and flavors that emerged were virtuous: bright lemon; pungent spice; and suggestions of salt and stone, all in a buoyant and ultimately highly refreshing context. A return visit will hopefully find the nose cleared up here, and I suspect the wine has at least 12-15 year potential. The plot in question - for more about whose peculiarities, consult other reports I have written on Richter's wines - has an excellent track record in his hands.Zind-Humbrecht's 2007 Gewurztraminer Herrenweg de Turckheim smells of sweet pea, celery seed, litchi, peach preserves, bacon fat and browned butter. Polished and honeyed, creamy and sultry (but without its 15.5% alcohol generating objectionable heat) it finishes with remarkable reserves of primary juiciness and nips of cress and white pepper which - no doubt along with sheer extract - help keep its sweetness from becoming cloying.

Exotic and rich, this Gewuuml;rztraminer has a smoky, mineral edge to its rose, apricot and honey flavors. Itrsquo;s big, but never plodding, and resonates on the long finish. Drink now through 2010.

A good value in the world of Zind-Humbrecht wines, this off-dry Gewuuml;rztraminer is super-concentrated, with a silky texture and flavors of lychees and cling peaches. A nice white cherry accent kicks in on the medium finish. Try with Thai fare.

(15.2% alcohol with 7.6 g/l r.s.) Pale yellow-gold color. Expressive aromas of smoked meat, spices and mirabelle then surprisingly dry in the mouth, with bracing flavors of minerals and ginger. Not yet round but this has a serious backbone.

Just off-dry and spicy, with grapefruit and lychee flavors added to the mix. Nicely balanced, picking up intensity on the white pepper-tinged finish. Drink now through 2010. 1,125 cases made. -BS Wine Spectator. A Gewurztraminer wine from Alsace in France. 2005 Domaine Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Herrenweg Turckheim 750ml
