'A solid riesling with sliced-apple and lime aromas and flavors.'

  • Winegrowing is a passion that has been passed down from father to son in the Humbrecht family since the 17th century. Domaine Zind Humbrecht today comprises of 40 hectares of vines, spread out over an array of different terroirs in the geological patchwork which is the Alsatian wine region and birthplace of our noble grape varieties.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Originating from the Herrenweg area and its surroundings, this wine is made from vineyards that all enjoy a precocious and warm climate. This was certainly amplified in 2015, and of all the grapes planted in this area, Riesling was the one that we feared for the most. Luckily, the end of July and August rainfalls did wonders. The vines started to grow again, turned greener and looked normal again. Véraison was homogenous and fast, allowing us to harvest early. The grapes were very healthy and showed already powerful aromatic potential on the taste. Unusually for this grape, the fermentation was also very fast and finished only when the wine was bone dry.

    TASTING NOTES

    The nose shows intense white fruit aromas, classic Riesling intensity without the more stony character often found on richer wines. The palate feels surprisingly intense, while finishing very dry but without any tightness. An easy wine to enjoy in its youth.

  • REVIEWS

    'A solid riesling with sliced-apple and lime aromas and flavors. Cement and stone undertones. Pretty, phenolic texture. Medium to full body, a bone-dry palate and a gorgeous finish. Rich and flavorful yet only 11.5% alcohol. Don't miss this. Biodynamically grown grapes all from around the winery in Turckheim.'
