- Model: Zind Humbrecht Riesling Turckheim 2016
This Riesling is about as dry as Alsace gets. Crisp, with notes of green apples and citrus, but featherweight and hugely aromatic. Zind Humbrecht is undoubtedly one of the greatest estates of Alsace, and one of the very early pioneers of biodynamics. The quality of the wines is all down to the hard work that Olivier Humbrecht MW puts in; the attention to detail is astonishing, plus the fact that he has fantastic vineyards to start with. It is difficult to generalise and sum up a ‘house’ style for ZH, but if pushed I would say the wines are always flamboyant and hedonistic, but with an underlying nervosity with crystalline acidity and, even though the wines carry varying levels of sweetness, there is always a pleasant dryness to the finish. They are never cloying nor top-heavy.
