2013 Zind-Humbrecht Dry Muscat
These are always a hard sale for us and yet, here we are, trying to get folks to give these wines a shot. Dry and Muscat can be a hard concept considering how much sweet Muscat flooded the market as of late but we assure you, this wine is quite dry. The nose is all Muscat, floral and with tons of peaches and apricot. There is a hint of honey and herb here as well. On the palate the wine shows some serious weight but also some serious pucker. Kinda messes with your mind a wee bit, to smell all that fruit and feel a weighty, bone dry and tangy wine come scraping across the palate, but that’s what makes it so much fun! It wants meats and cheeses this spunky little wine.
