Overview of the Wine
Due to its location at the end of the Munster valley, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht's Herrenweg Vineyard benefits from maximum sunshine, especially in the evenings with the sun setting much later. Minimal rainfall and valley winds keep the soil and the vines dry. Located on the alluvial fan of the Fecht river, a large part of Herrenweg Vineyard is made up of a clay-silty-sandy gravel-sand substratum on Vosges alluvia, Würm pebbles or loess on Würm alluvia. The soil drains well and heats up very quickly, leading to a regular and homogeneous maturation of the grapes. The warm, dry climate in consort with the soil allow this vineyard to ripen its grapes very quickly. All varieties are planted here.

Tasting Notes
Following Alsatian tradition, Pinot Blanc is blended with Auxerrois to form this wine. Grapes come from a combination of Zind-Humbrecht’s top vineyards, including Herrenweg and Rotenberg Vineyards. Zind-Humbrecht’s dedication to terroir expression guides all winemaking practices, which include extended pressing cycles, abbreviated clarification cycles (to retain natural yeasts and proteins in the must), natural malolactic fermentation and extended aging on the lees. The wine is aged 8 months in 40-year-old French barrels.

92 Points - James Suckling
An off-piste Alsatian wine made from Chardonnay and Auxerrois. This textured and distinctly mineral blend comes from the chalky soils of the cool, late-ripening Clos Windsbuhl vineyard in Hunawihr. It’s fermented ‘wild’ for up to 12 months in large oak foudres giving it immense body and lush tropical fruit notes. Lanolin, vanilla, limestone and a zippy lime-tinged acidity complete the picture. Biodynamic.
