Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, March 2017

Zind-Humbrecht is arguably Alsace’s finest estate, and in recent vintages has been producing some seriously exciting wines. The cool limestone soils of their monopole Clos Windbuhl have produced a racy Riesling despite the richness of the vintage. This late ripening single vineyard makes detailed examples of Alsace, and this wine has a precise line of tingling acidity, and notes of spice and dried pineapple. The vibrant acidity makes the long finish feel dry and refreshing.

Region

Alsace, Alsace

On the Eastern border of France lying between the Vosges mountains and the Rhine river, this much-disputed area has for a large part of its existence been in the hands of Germany. This is visually apparent in the half-timbered houses lining the streets in medieval-looking villages and vinously evident in the prevalence of white wine in the region. Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Gris and Muscat make up the majority of plantings and are the only varieties permitted in the Alsace Grand Cru appellation. Pinot Noir (the only significant black grape variety), Pinot Blanc, Chasselas and Sylvaner also get a look in. Wines are made in all styles from sparkling and dry to the most unctuously sweet botrytised pudding wines.
