Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Roche Granitique 2018

Description

This wine is in fact the ‘second’ wine of our Grand Cru Brand, produced by the youngest vines there. Youngest, yes, at 36 years old average, because the oldest vines are much older and do produce a very different wine! In 2018, we also added the very small production of the young vines of the Sommerberg Grand Cru that was planted in 2013. I didn’t change the average age of the vines becomes it represented less than 10% of the total volume. Mea Culpa! These granitic vineyard enjoy some of the most precocious, warm, sun drenched situation in Alsace, and are growing on very poor sandy soil that looks very dry when there is no regular rain. Despite that, the vines were beautifully green throughout summer. That can be explained by the possibility these vines have to grow deeper root system and then find finer elements (clay originating from the black mica) and some humidity. In 2018, the grapes ripened quickly and reached a perfect balance, it wasn’t easy for the vines, but the stress was under control. The 2018 wine fermented very slowly but kept a steady pace and finished dry.
