Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris 2011

Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris 750ML 2011   
Sku: 22198

The Humbrecht family has been winegrowers in Alsace since 1620 but the Domaine came by its current name when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind in 1959. Located in the heart of the Herrenweg vineyard, Leonard significantly expanded the familyís holdings to include an enviable collection of Grand Cru and other high quality vineyards. The Domaine is currently managed by Leonardís son, Olivier Humbrecht, the only Alsacian winemaker to attain M.W. status. A staunch advocate for biodynamic farming, Olivier tailors every aspect of viticulture and winemaking based on terroir. Whether a single vineyard or a blend, place and vintage are clearly and unmistakably expressed in each wine.

Tasting notes
The nose is powerful and intense, with nutty flavors, cocoa and ripe peach and pear. The palate feels much drier than the nose. It is big and bold, but with very firm acidity and lovely minerality.

Technical notes
The majority of fruit for this wine was harvested from Herrenweg Vineyard, which is planted on gravelly soils. The average age of the vines is 20 years old. Indice 2
