A blend of Muscat d’Alsace and Muscat Ottonel from Herrenweg Vineyard make up this wine. 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 8 months in 40-year-old French barrels.
The nose is very intense and refined with floral and fruity aromas. The palate is delicate and the dry finish makes a very interesting wine. The perfect summer wine.
