Zind-Humbrecht-Pinot-Blanc-2015

Zind Humbrecht, Pinot Blanc, 2015

“Bright pale straw. Perfumed aromas of apple, orange peel and sweet herbs, plus a suggestion of dried fruits. Bright and broad but light on its feet; offers a classic combination of volume and spice (the Auxerrois) and appley-mineral lift (the Pinot Blanc). Lively acidity supports and extends the finishing flavors of fruit and herbs. Roughly 66 percent Auxerrois (from the Rotenberg site) and Pinot Blanc (all from the Herrenweg). Lower-than-usual yields in 2015 (and as at Zind-Humbrecht, they are not exactly known for producing grapes hand over fist, which means volumes were really very low) due to poor flowering because of the difficult spring weather, leading to berry shatter and millerandage. Lovely, appley Pinot Blanc.” – Ian D’Agata, Vinous (91 Points)
