Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Gueberschwihr 2009
"There's a zesty base to this Riesling, where zippy acidity partners with a spicy mineral thread, resulting in a lively, streamlined wine. But flavors of quince, star fruit and papaya are fresh and juicy, fleshing out the wine, while hints of orchard blossoms and grapefruit zest linger on the finish...92" WS 10/11
External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Gueberschwihr
The 2006 Gueberschwihr is beautifully aromatic and gentle. The higher ripeness explains the extra honeyed/softer aromatics, and the presence of noble rot gives this unmistakable roundness and flavour complexity on the palate. The limestone influence and classic acidity always present in Gueberschwihr wines show mostly on the finish: quite dry and racy. Despite its village status, it is a wine capable of good ageing.
