Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

"Herrenweg"



BIODYNAMIC RIESLING FROM ALSACE


Herrenweg Riesling is planted on 1.06 hectare on the southern and steepest part of the mountain (50 ̊ slope!), facing south and southwest. The earth is pure limestone, perfect for Riesling. In the nose it has apples, citrus and fresh flowers. In the mouth it is pure in taste with honey melon and pink grape. Beautifully full and a light sweetness that balances the acidity in a noble way.


BIODYNAMISK RIESLING FRA ALSACE


Herrenweg Riesling er plantet på 1,06 hkt på bjergets sydlige og stejleste del          (50 ̊hældning!), vendt stik syd og sydvest. Jorden er ren kalk, perfekt til Riesling. I næsen har den æbler, citrus og friske blomster. I munden er den ren i smagen med honningmelon og pink grape. Flot fyldig og en let, lille sødme som afbalancerer syrligheden på fornem vis.

ABOUT THE WINERY


DOMAINE ZIND-HUMBRECHT


Domaine Zind-Humbrecht with Olivier Humbrecht in charge enjoys a good reputation worldwide. The way to create the great wines was laid already in the 1970s, when Olivier's father, Léonard Humbrecht, succeeded in buying some of Alsace's best plots on the very steep slopes, after they had being left by farmers searching for flatter areas. The domain has been biodynamically certified since 2002 and is generally known as one of the major pioneers of biodynamics in France.


Domaine Zind-Humbrecht med Olivier Humbrecht i spidsen nyder et godt ry verden over. Vejen til at skabe de store vine blev lagt allerede i 1970-erne, hvor det lykkedes Oliviers far, Léonard Humbrecht at købe nogle af Alsace bedste parceller på de meget stejle skråninger, efter de var blevet efterladt af bønder, der søgte mod fladere områder. Domænet har været biodynamisk certificeret siden 2002 og er generelt kendt som en af de store pionerer inden for biodynamikken i Frankrig.
