Zind-Humbrecht Riesling 2012

Zind-Humbrecht Riesling 750ml 2012   
Sku: 1830191*

The Humbrecht family has made wine in Alsace, France since 1620 but began operating under its current name when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind in 1959. The winery is situated in the heart of the Herrenweg Vineyard along the main road between Colmar and Turckheim. The wines are made by Leonard’s son, Olivier Humbrecht, Master of Wine. Olivier is a passionate advocate for wines from this region and the benefits of biodynamic and organic farming. All viticulture and vinification decisions are tailored to the belief that great wines are a reflection of place. The estate was certified organic in 1998 and received its biodynamic certification in 2002. Olivier has customized the biodynamic practices developed by Rudolph Steiner to suit the terroir at the estate. He restricts yields, relies on indigenous yeasts and ferments his wines at low temperatures on their lees in oak barrels for an extended period. Only handharvested estate fruit is used. The wines from this legendary estate are archetypal examples of terroir and varietal and considered amongst some of the best in the world.

Tasting notes
The ripeness of the grape skins and the limestone characteristics of the soil have produced a wine with pronounced varietal aromas and flavors. A wine of medium acidity, it finishes completely dry. Indice 1

Technical notes
For the 2012 vintage, grapes from the younger vines in the Herrenweg vineyard were blended with fruit harvested from estate parcels planted on limestone soils. The vintage produced very healthy fruit, with good phenolic ripeness and balanced sugar levels.
