  • This Riesling comes from the limestone terroir of Muschelkalk, enjoying a south–southeast facing aspect which enables the perfect ripening of the fruit. This is an Ecocert certified wine, vinified by gravity and bottled late after maturation on lees for a year. Aromas are therefore autolytic (thanks to the maturation on its lees), just like the toasted flavours produced in torrefaction. Citrus and white-fleshed fruits greet the nose; in the mouth it is structured and mineral, revealing a salinity and acidity which make it well-suited to ageing pairing with flavours of the sea.

    Zind Humbrecht was created in 1959 as a result of the merger of the wine producing operations of the Humbrecht family in Gueberschwihr and the Zind family in Wintzenheim. The Humbrechts are a very old wine-making family, who have been passing their skills from one generation to the next since the Thirty Years War (1620). The property has 40 hectares and is managed according to biodynamic principles. Zind Humbrecht has long been established as one of Alsace's most reputable producers. Léonard Humbrecht has placed quality over quantity, developing superb terroirs that have been neglected because they are too difficult to work, such as Rangen in Thann. Today, Olivier Humbrecht and his father are only interested in exceptional terroirs; their insistence on quality, combined with virtuoso technical ability, enable them to produce exceptionally dense, complex wines that are always respectful of the characteristics of the grape varieties and the terroir.
