Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A lovely wine, with a minerally undertow and finely tuned acidity framing apricot, kumquat, acacia blossom, smoke and crystallized honey notes that show a hint of lychee. A zesty thread of spice winds through the wine and lingers on the subtle finish...93" WS 10/12 "Pale yellow-gold. Complex, scented nose offers pineapple, smoke, lichee, pepper, mint and hay. Rich, plush and sweet, with harmonious acidity framing the concentrated yellow fruit flavors. A real fruit bomb in the mouth; in fact, today the site's smoky minerality is very much in the background. Nicely dry on the palate but I wanted a bit more definition and thrust...92" IWC 12/12

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.
