Domaine Zind Humbrecht Herrenweg de Turckheim Riesling 2012


SKU 32310


Light bright yellow colour. The nose is still discreet for this vineyard, probably still under the influence of the long lees contact. With time, the nose develops subtil fruity aromas, fresh almonds and the classic Riesling minerals. There is a strong sense of origin on the nose, confirmed on the palate by a sapid acidity on the attack. The wine feels really dry, balanced by a delicate texture. This is serious Herrenweg Riesling. The old vines really had a positive effect in this vintage.

Wine AdvocateA white-golden color followed by a very clear, pure, nicely matured, and quite complex bouquet with stewed apple and cinnamon aromas along with a dash of lemon juice on the nose of the 2012 Riesling Herrenweg de Turckheim (Lot 144) perform an excellent overture to an elegant, balanced, medium to full-bodied, mineral and fruity wine, with a long and salty finish. There is no need to wait to enjoy this Riesling with lunch, although there is no need to hurry up as well. The wine has grip, structure, and length and a stimulating citrus flavor in the aftertaste.
