...This wine has depth, is fleshy, and has remarkable purity.
About the Wine
A tiny little 1.2ha vineyard, the Clos Hauserer was the creation of Oliver’s father, who cobbled together a collection of rows to form a coherent block of Riesling vines in 1973.
A super energetic nose is a very cool introduction to this wine, minerality and purity literally oozing from its juicy pores.it oozes mineral greatness and purity. The palate is tonic, sharp, salivating and one can feel the limestone soils through a mouthfeel that finishes dry and persistent.
While this is a wine that is made for cellaring, there is still an immense attractiveness to it in its youth. The kind of wine you buy multiple bottles of, just to enjoy throughout its evolutionary journey.
About Domaine Zind Humbrecht
Current winemaker Olivier Humbrecht is the latest custodian of this famous Domaine which has an unbroken winemaking lineage in Alsace since 1620.
Also an MW, Olivier was the first French winemaker to attain this prestigious title and remains one of the few global winemakers who have committed to this intense and some would say insane pursuit.
One of the hallmarks of every Zind-Humbrecht wine has been its overriding sense of terroir; their focus on their vineyard sites is paramount, with every aspect of their winemaking and viticulture tailored to that goal. Since 2002 they have been certified both organic and biodynamic.
