Overview

This Pinot Blanc is produced from Zind-Humbrecht's usual Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois blend (35%/65%) originating from both Herrenweg vineyard (50%) and Rotenberg vineyard (50%). This combination works perfectly as the later ripening red limestone of the Rotenberg brings structure and acidity, whether the warm precocious alluvial Herrenweg brings richness and aromatics. Pinot Blanc will probably become more important as it keeps better acidity balance in warm vintages. In 2013, there was no such concern and it was easy to obtain the perfect balance for a dry wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose shows elegant fresh citrus fruit with a delicate stony signature. Despite a long fermentation and early reductive nose, this wine is now open.

Palate

The palate has medium power with a surprising long finish. Enjoyable and drinkable style! Very dry but with a classic round finish and good acidity. Easy food companion!

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959 by the union of the family owned properties of Zénon Humbrecht, winegrower at Gueberschwihr and of Emile Zind, winegrower in Wintzenheim. Before this date each of the families were producing and selling their wines under their own name. Winegrower from father to son since the Thirty Years war in Europe (1620) the Humbrecht family has long winemaking traditions, with the current winemaker being Olivier Humbrecht MW.
