Riesling Clos Windsbuhl 2014 Zind Humbrecht
€ 60,44 (in Vat)
The 2014 Riesling Clos Windsbuhl is again a great Riesling, although it is still closed and hidden under limestone rocks (bottled end of February 2016). However, it opens with an intense and concentrated but also fresh, fine and transparent lemon flavor intermixed with the powder of crushed stones. Full-bodied, round and elegant, with 9.1 grams of residual sugar and 12.52% of alcohol, the 2014 is packed with ripe and juicy fruits. There is also grip and tension due to vibrant acidity and low pH (8.5/2.9). This is a tightly woven and airy structured Riesling with a silky texture, great finesse and fine tannin structure. Very promising.

Laserlike acidity defines this statuesque Riesling, while the mouthwatering palate offers flavors of lime granita, crunchy white peach, fleur de sel and Thai basil. Long and vibrant, with a lasting, minerally finish.
