Stared in 1959, when neighboring winegrowers Zénon Humbrecht and Emile Zind decided to join forces, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht comprises 96 acres of vineyards stretching across five different villages in Alsace. Awarded biodynamic status in 2002, control of the estate is still shared between the two families who have been producing and selling wine independently since 1620! As a result, the history of this Domaine is intrinsically linked with that of the Alsace region, and the wines produced on the estate are an accurate reflection of the exceptional Alsacien terroirs. Head Winemaker Olivier Humbrecht is a renowned in all corners of the wine world, And one of a relatively small number of winemakers to have gained the Master of Wine qualification. This wine is a dry Riesling in the old Alsace style. The Wine Advocate said "Zind-Humbrecht’s 2010 Riesling Terroir d’Alsace – sourced largely from multiple sites in Turckheim – represents the cuvee that Olivier Humbrecht wants his customers to associate vintage by vintage with classic, dry-tasting Alsace Riesling…..Fresh lime, shrubby herbs and flowers along with a striking evocation of saline, alkaline sea breeze make for an intriguing nose; and the impression on this wine’s bright, firm, yet lees-buffered palate is no less interesting, contributing complexity to a bracing and mouthwatering if slightly sharp-finishing and austere performance. Plan to revisit it through at least 2020."
