Winemaker's Notes:

"In its author’s opinion, the extremely high acid Zind-Humbrecht 2008 Riesling Brand Selection de Grains Nobles comes off as more austere than its non-”late-harvested” counterpart, and he finds no obvious botrytis on the nose. I, on the other hand, credit noble rot with the aroma of mushroom that this shares with a significant number of other wines in Humbrecht’s 2008 collection, but if this be austerity let me revel in it!
