Riesling Clos Windsbuhl Monopole 2017


Riesling Clos Windsbuhl Monopole 2017

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: France / Alsace / Hunawihr
Grapes: 100% Riesling

The altitude of the vineyard coupled with Hunawihr’s delayed climate means that the Clos Windsbuhl is often one of the last estate vineyards to be harvested. This explains the aromatic quality of the Clos’ wines and the consistent balance of acidity, a guarantee of good aging. 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 18 months in 40-year-old French barrels.

tasting note

Refined, mineral nose that opens up to display vibrant citrus and white fruits. The palate has a smooth, delicate, mineral structure but quickly firms up around the acidity. Beautiful ripe, integrated acidity.

food pairing

Seafood, shellfish, pork chops, goat cheese or sushi.
