Zind Humbrecht, Riesling 'Herrenweg'
- Alsace, France
Herrenweg means the ‘soldiers road’ in reference to the old romaine road that linked Colmar to the other side of the Vosges. The Herrenweg is our most precocious vineyard because it benefits from the Colmar specific climate (driest and warmest in Alsace) and also the soil, made of pebbles and fine sands, drains easily and therefore warms up very quickly. As temperatures at roots level are more influential on precocity than temperatures at leaves level, it explains why any grape variety on the estate is always harvested first in the Herrenweg.
The nose shows a surprising nice minerality for the Herrenweg, usually fruitier and simpler. Yields are also very small! The palate has the structure of a tight limestone Riesling, with a crisp saline acidity. Low residual sugars, so the finish is quite dry and long.
