Available for:
Category White Wine
Origin France, Alsace
Brand Domaine Zind Humbrecht
Alcohol/vol 12.5%
The Zind is classified as Vin de France (table wine) because it contains about 70% Chardonnay, blended with Auxerrois, which is not an allowed grape in AOP Alsace. My father Leonard Humbrecht chose to plant this grape on the coolest part of the Clos Windsbuhl, nearing the forest, because it has the ability to keep great structure and acidity, enhanced by the rocky limestone soil. A small amount of Auxerrois allows to create the perfect balance. Windsbuhl produces elegant style wines, mostly characterized by a lacy and acidity driven structure. In 2018, these grapes performed superbly and made a wine that became dry after a very long fermentation, another characteristic from this vineyard.

A flinty whiff of reduction obscures the nose on this wine. The palate comes in with slight lemon freshness and nutty-textured, chalky brightness. Lovely balance fills the palate, still with those appetizing, flinty edges. Final freshness gives the wine its joyful fillip.

The 2018 Zind, 70% Chardonnay and 30% Auxerrois, is an attractive entry-level offering. Lemon oil, white pepper, white flowers and earthy tones give the 2018 lovely brightness, although the wine remains a bit severs and edgy on the palate.
