Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Aoc Gueberschwihr 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"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

The annual cycle of work, parallel with cycle of nature, consists of a number of interventions, comprising biological treatments against the diseases and others aiming at improving the quality. mong the latter, the pruning is particularly decisive. Too severe, it prevents the harmonious development of the vine, insufficient, the vine will overproduce unripen grapes. A this moment, the presence of Paul’s grandson Pierre-Paul Humbrecht, is of utmost importance to the vineyard, to prune correctly and at the right time. 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. Naturally, Pierre-Paul Humbrecht is using the latest agricultural technologies to ease the task while remaining in harmony with nature, thus our advance towards biological agriculture or rather the search of our origins towards the Earth...

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.
