100% REES-ling
Riesling is one of the greatest, long-lived white wines in the world, highly expressive of the nuances of its respective terroir. The wines are generally relatively low to moderate in alcohol with crisp acidity and full of flavor and extract. Stylistically, it can vary from bone dry to quite sweet, and with age can develop intense aromatics. Because Riesling is so expressive of the terroir from where it is grown, it can show a potential mix of floral, fruity, intensely mineral, smoky and/or spicy aromas and flavors depending on the soil, climate, and exposure.

Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

Alsace, France

Zind-Humbrecht was established by the marriage of two winemaking families with a history that goes back to the 17th century. The marriage of Léonard Humbrecht and Geneviève Zind brought the two small family domaines together in 1959 and started what is known today as Domaine Zind-Humbrecht.

Zind-Humbrecht consists of 40 hectares of some of Alsace’s best terroir. It is managed by a staff of 22 people, which gives some insight into the rigorous nature of their work in the vineyard, including organic and biodynamic farming, animal traction, and hand-harvesting. 

The wines are aged a minimum of six months on the lees and represent some of the most compelling wines in Alsace defined by their energetic texture and complex aromatics and flavors.
