92 opints JS: "An exciting pinot blanc that marries the citrusy ripeness and lively acidity we associate with this category with a pronounced saline minerality. Very crisp finish. Exclusively from the gravelly soils of the Herrenweg of Turckheim. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now."
Appealing aromas of nuts and white fruits with well-balanced acidity and a smooth texture.
Following Alsatian tradition, Pinot Blanc is blended with Auxerrois to form this wine. Grapes come from a combination of Zind-Humbrecht's top vineyards, including Herrenweg and Rotenberg Vineyards. Zind-Humbrecht's dedication to terroir expression guides all winemaking practices, which include extended pressing cycles, abbreviated clarification cycles (to retain natural yeasts and proteins in the must), natural malolactic fermentation and extended aging on the lees. The wine is aged 8 months in 40-year-old French barrels.
