Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Clos Windsbuhl 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"While harvest rains may have caught out many, Olivier's Humbrecht biodynamicsoils were well prepared to soak it up and come out the other side into fineweather. This mercurial Hunnawihr Clos, in the shadow of the Vosges forestbenefits from cool, slow-ripening muschelkalk calcareous soils to give a lessonin limestone purity; still very young and taut, this dry wine (2 grams residualsugar) needs 5 years to open up."

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.
