This is the ‘second’ wine of Zind Humbrecht's Sommerberg Grand Cru, produced from a parcel of their youngest vines. The vines in this Cru are so old, that when we say 'youngest' we are still talking about vines that are nearly 40 years old! This granitic vineyard enjoys some of the most precocious, warm, sun drenched situation in Alsace, and the resulting wine is well structured and wonderfully aromatic.

A note from the winemaker:

'Most people believe that Riesling on granite should make austere type of wine. This is not my experience on granite. When the grapes are fully ripen like here, the wines become generous and flavourful with a very typical intensity. The palate shows weight and length, with a dry harmonious finish.'

About Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Organic since 1997 and Biodynamic since 2002, Zind Humbrecht are revolutionaries in sustainability viticulture in Alsace. The estate is historic, but it wasn't until Olivier Humbrecht MW took over the family business that people really started to sit up an listen. It is a very unique thing to have a Master of Wine running a winery, and Olivier brought his knowledge outside of Alsace to bring innovation to his family cellar. These are exciting wines that pay homage to tradition whilst constantly looking to the future.
