Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Clos Häuserer 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This vibrant Riesling is just off-dry, focused by finely placed acidity that drives the flavors of macerated peach and apricot, candied pink grapefruit and lemon curd, with a base of stony minerality. Appealing now, but the precision balance suggests a long life ahead...94" WS 10/11
