Riesling Brand Vieilles Vignes Zind-Humbrecht 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Rich and just off-dry, this Riesling is very aromatic with apple blossom and lychee notes, as well as pure flavors of patisserie apple and pear, pineapple, crystallized honey and candied pink grapefruit peel. For all its richness, this is fine-textured and silky, with subtle, juicy acidity that drives the wine and keeps it lively, with a long, mouthwatering finish...94." WS 10/12.

Given unfavourable climatic conditions, the harvest may suffer but when the seasons flow normally the right pruning will be rewarded by a juice of very high quality. hen the vine has had its budburst, the disbudding (selection of branches) and desuckering (supression of the growths resulting from sucker from the trunk), are made manually to avoid any harmful effect to the vine. During the bloom, trimming consists in shortening the end of the branches leaving just the right quantity of good quality leafs that the young vine needs. During ripening, the stripping to improve the exposure of the grapes to the sun and thinning out the grapes in excess must be done with precision in order to obtain a harvest of great quality. orking the ground consists of several heavy duty work. Hilling up the vine, ploughing down and plowing between the rows of vine are accomplished each year.
