Overview

This is the deal: they only make this wine if they can be sure that the fermentation will be complete and the wine dry (under 5g/l residual sweetness). They usually use grapes originating from the Herrenweg area, or a vineyard just below the Clos Jebsal and certain parcels in the Brand (mostly younger vines).

In 2012, as they only kept the old vines in Brand for the Grand Cru wine, this wine was made from 100% granitic Brand vines. Healthy grapes, perfect ripeness, good wild yeast: the wine finished dry with a great structure.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose displays a fullness and mineral intensity rarely achieved in this wine. No doubt the pure granitic origin explains the minerality and wet stones character, not as strong when there are more valley floor vineyards blended into this wine.

Palate

The mid palate shows a wonderful bright richness, yet totally dry. This is a fabulous dry Riesling with a crisp clean pure mineral finish.

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.
