Domaine Zind-Humbrecht 2012 Riesling

In 2012, we took most of the Riesling grapes from the Herrenweg vineyard, starting with the younger vines, and keeping only the oldest vines for the vineyard designated wine. There are also some grapes originating from limestone vineyards. All grapes showed exceptional physiological ripeness in 2012, but curiously, even on the early ripening valley floors, we did not reach high sugar levels. After a fast fermentation, the wine fermented bone dry. The skin ripeness and the origin of the grapes explain the intensity on the nose in this wine.
