BRIGHT AND INTENSE EXPRESSION OF ALSACE RIESLING

Flinty reduction and lemony zestiness create a very appetizing nose. The palate delvers more of those zesty, juicy, mouth-watering lemon notes while the full, rounded body adds a stony depth to those ripe Amalfi lemon flavors. There is tautness, even on this generous body. The dry finish tapers beautifully into a notion of ripe lemon zest. Wine Enthusiast, 93 points

  • Full lees contact for 18 months
  • 2018 Vintage highly reviewed
  • Only 12.5% alcohol

Food Pairing: Notoriously dry and ultra-crisp with phenomenal minerality, acidity, and peppy palate appeal–tend to go well with smoked fish, crab cakes, foie gras, roasted goose, pâté, and wild game

Cellaring: Ideal to drink now through 2031.

 

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

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.However, some aeration will show that it is in fact still marked by the full lees contact for 18 months and becomes even more aromatic and intense, developing fruity aromas, aromatic herbs… Most people believe that Riesling on granite should make austere type of wine. This is not my experience on granite. When the grapes are fully ripen like here, the wines become generous and flavourful with a very typical intensity
